Imitation of LIFE

Hope everyone had a happy, safe, stuffed Thanksgiving [hand turkey pictures coming soon]. Just in case you haven't heard, LIFE has recently released their photo archives online. A lot of this stuff had only been negatives, but now they're online! Some of my favorites:


Ruby Kitsu playing piano for some lovely men in uniform, 1940s.

"The Great Drapo": Alphonse Berge draped single pieces of fabric to create evening dresses in 20 seconds at the World's Fair (New York, 1940)



























Enjoy the photos. More to come.
