The famous through the eyes of Imogen Cunningham

Apr 14, 2010

Magnolia Blossom (1925), Two Callas (1925)

I have always been an admirer of Imogen Cunningham's botanical photography.  Yesterday I discovered some of her portraits of famous people.  I love the candid shots, like the one of photographer Ansel Adams.  And the photo of actor Cary Grant is striking don't you think? 

(A fun little fact about Imogen- she was born here in Portland!)

 Ansel Adams (1953), Cary Grant (1932)

Frida Kahlo Rivera (1931),  Alvar Aalto (1961)

Upton Sinclair (1934), Self-portrait (1932)
