hello class.
I just discovered this fantastic photographer–GEORGE HURRELL–who photographed the glamour icons of 1930s-40s Hollywood.
His use of highly contrasting lights and darks is reminiscent of the Baroque style we’ve been studying. There is something in Hurrell’s photographs that is overwhelmingly emotional and personal–something disarming, modern, and startlingly beautiful.
see for yourself…
