George, the photographer.

Recently, I learned that a member of our family, on my husband's side, was a famous photographer between the 20s and 50s.  Pretty interesting. After some research, I discovered he was indeed prominent.  George Honyningen Huene was a fashion and portrait photographer.  He worked a great deal for Harpars Bazar and as chief of photography at French Vogue!  Isn't that amazing?  He wrote books, photographed a lot of celebrities and later worked as a special visual and colour consultant for the Hollywood film industry.  Finding this out makes me feel giddy somehow - I just find it so cool.  What a life! I wish I could have met him.

Anyways, here are some of his pictures I gathered all over the internet for you to enjoy.
