Louise Brooks photos

Back in the 1980s I started collecting photographs and postcards of Louise Brooks and Clara Bow and seeking out their films.  Over the years I’ve accumulated a lot of stuff and it inevitably ends up being filed away in storage boxes – in the end it’s rarely looked at.  I decided to get some of my Louise Brooks collection out and scan it – here are some bits and pieces, nothing terribly surprising here and some of them have scanned better than others (the postcards scan pretty badly) but I thought I would share the pictures anyway:

I still find her breathtakingly beautiful even after all this time.  More on Louise Brooks soon.

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
