Sharing something a bit different today, a set of photos taken by Andrea Kinnison Photography a few weeks back on a Sunday afternoon jaunt we took out of town. We traded places throughout the afternoon, Andrea posing for me in pieces from the shop, and I for her in vintage we both brought. I've gotta say I'm quite enamored with the photos she captured on film! The Revolog film she used (and uses in a lot of her photography) gives these images just a dreamy slash eerie feel. I love the experimental feel and the unexpected effects she gets. Take a peek below to see her work!
Many know him from his work as a painter. However, Jacques Henri Lartigue had a second set of eyes, a pair that saw the world through his camera lens. In this world, he took around 120,000 photos, both under a professional and personal umbrella. Of those photographs, only about 40% were in color, most documenting his life and loves. Today it's the ones of his last love, Florette Ormea, that I'm drawn to.
"I have never taken a picture for any other reason than that at that moment it made me happy to do so," Lartigue once said. A statement that shows in the lightness and beauty in his personal photography.
A few weeks ago, I dove deep into the The Portal to Texas History, searching specifically for photos from Texan photographer Julius Born. I came across hundreds of captivating portraits and shared a few but there were just so many that I decided to split my favorites up into a few posts. The first being a collection of women (of course!) from the turn-of-the-century through the 1940's. Today, however, I'm doing something I rarely do, sharing my favorite images of the men I found.
