some great moments here...another time..she really captured the feeling of the dirty thirties....glad that's not my ass!

adrienzgirl said...

First, your new header? Wowzers!

Now the photos. She really has an eye for capturing the great expression. Really stunning. She might be a little obsessed with fat people though. Just sayin'

Christiejolu said...

Wow. Reminds me of Lilo and Stitch the little girl liked taking pictures of overweight people in that movie.

No really- that's your new header- I can't do it- I am feeling sick- I hate dead birds- a lot.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Your mind is wonderful, I would never be able to piece such a collection together. I kind of love the big man in the suit, idk why but that's a cool image. A lot of these remind me of the docs I watched about Germany during the beg of the war, just replace the brown hair with blonde :)

biker leather jackets said...

Wow!, this was a top quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good post… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get something done.

TK Kerouac said...

Love her style, she seemed to be drawn to the larger charcters in life, Diane Arbus had adopted much of this style of photography.

Ace said...

She was such a terrific photographer! The one of the lady (and I do mean lady!) on the beach makes me happy!
