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.


  1. Wow, these photos and this photoarchive are amazing! It's a new online treasure! Thanks for posting!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Alphonse! Where have you gone? Drape me in gorgeousness!


Thanks so much for your comments!
