Favorite Photo of the Week #3

Alla Nazimova costumed for the 1921 film Camille.  The settings were designed by Natacha Rambova and the co-star was Rudolph Valentino.  In this portrait the photographer is Arthur Rice, who was enormousely talented and died far too young in 1923.

There is nothing in the world like silent era glamor photographer which is why I am very much looking forward to David S. Shields' forthoming book "Still: American Silent Motion Picture Photography." publishing June 14th.  Amazon linkage for the book here to pre-order
