Portrait / Portrait

i’ve been looking for a reason to do another one of these posts. truth is they’ve been featured on some of my favourite blogs lately, and i’ve received many kind emails from readers saying how much they like them. man, people on the internet are nice! so i dipped into my folders of saved vintage photos (all from doctor macro) & paired them with portraits that i love. ended up making way too many for one post… more to come later.

marilyn monroe / al greco – a lady in a fur wrap

susan haywardivan g. olinsky – serviceman’s wife

james dean / charles w. hawthorne

janet leigh / leigh louise gadbois

natalie wood / picasso - la toilette

sharon tate / félix vallotton – la liseuse

nicole miller

i really appreciate the photography of nicole miller. i love these shots because they’re not overly cute, twee or posed. or photoshopped for that matter. those requirements should apply to all photography.
