Born David Robert Jones, David Bowie is one of the most influential people in my life. Not only is he the epitome of classic rock, but his sense of style, on or off the stage is quite brilliant. He is never satisfied with his image, and is constantly changing. Bowie fan forever.
Even if Tom Palumbo's photography is mostly from the 50's to the 60's, I can't help but to appreciate its timeless style. Although he was born in Molfetta Italy in 1921, his family moved to New York City when he was about 12 years old. He went on to become a staff photographer at Vogue from 1959 until 1962 and at Harper's Bazaar from 1953 until 1959. Unfortunately he passed away October 2008.
I am absolutely in love with his beautiful photography.
When it comes to black and white photography, not many can create as much burning emotion as Sam Hessamian. He is a genius when it comes to capturing feelings on film. With the girl standing alone on the street he gives a serene, free lancing and independent feel.
