Default The Penn Pals

Long long time since my last visit and I nowadays mostly do strange and fun photographic projects. I invent photographers, write their biography and then create their images, like Sven Boqvist, who visited New York in 1956, as he had been writing to Irving Penn for some time thanks to his friendship with his wife, Lisa Fonssagrives ( both came from Uddevalla , Sweden ). Svens images were lost but found after 50 years, and became a book called The Penn Pals, to ride a little on Irvings name. ( very short version ).

// Sven Boqvist, self portrait from 2012

// Tatiana Baronova, half sister to Irina and aunt to Victoria Tennant, here in Irving Penns studio ( balancing on a alabaster egg )

// The Tunnel Dance, Central Park.

// Vanessa Fantini

//Deborah Maywald, owner of the Framed Fame Studios.

Sorry, forgot the introducing part ( the old one is 6 years old =) ) Im a former musician, although I still have some alter egos in that field too =) that started to make websites and design things and then getting into an obsession with photography.

I like the work, but the last picture doesn't fit in or is she the ballerina?

Thanks!
No, she is the owner of the Framed Fame Studios on Manhattan. That was more of a documentary photo, taken at Bryant Park. She has the look of Marilyn Monroes mother =)
More stylish "portrait" of her is ...



... and ...




... and he also met Edna Winters ....
