E.J. Bellocq(NSFW)

A view at some of my favorite E.J. Bellocq photographs, which were taken around 1912 in Storyville, Louisiana. The subjects of these photographs are known to be prostitutes and out of work actresses around this time. My favorite part of these images is that some have been scratched off, unknown by who, adding a mystery aspect to the entire thing. I am so lucky to have found this book because it is a giant source of inspiration to me, in my personal life, my artwork and my own photography. Although I don’t shoot film, I do love the look and feel of it.
