Vintage Vogue

I am so so so in love with vintage vogue covers and photographs, the one above in particular. They inspire me so much. I would absolutely love to have each and every one in my bedroom, unfortunately space is a huge issue and I may be called somewhat obsessive. The black and white photograph above is by Henry Clarke and is titled 'Playclothes of the Western World' May 1962. I have a passion for black and white photographs. I think they are amazing. The mood of a black and white photograph is much more passionate than that of colour. You feel connected to the image. You can access vogue covers and photographs at the Vogue Cover Archive, they even have covers from 90 years ago! You can search for covers by year, model or photographer, which ever takes your fancy...

Ooh I love black & white photos. To me they are more expressive, and more forgiving (I look better in black & white than in colour).

Avril said...

I completely agree tinkerblue, they are very expressive (perfect to describe them)and I must admit I look better in black and white as well!

I agree with you about black & whites - they're just simple yet amazing.

If you can find the space, I think you should go for it, because I think the fact that people might call you obsessive means you have your own personal style. BE obsessive! Let 'em talk! :)

I like your thinking lisajay!! Having too much of something in one room, like the vogue pictures all on one wall, could be part of my style. Thank you for your comment, I feel so inspired!
