courtney brooke

Recently, with the help of Nicola, I discovered an absolutely brilliant photographer named Courtney Brooke. My beautiful header is one of her many self-portraits. She is absolutely gorgeous and her pictures look right out of the 60s/70s. If she wasn't such a talented photographer, I'd say she should be a model. She's done work for vintage stores such an Mamma Stone Vintage and Lullie Vintage. I'd be surprised if she wasn't one of the coolest people ever.
Her flickr page is http://www.flickr.com/photos/courtneybrooke/

Christ!

Look at her!

So this is the one you mentioned, right?

She is fantastic, she really looks like she was a Rolling Stones girlfriend, don't you think?

Some people were born in the wrong era, but in this case I'm glad we get her.

The last one is what I am currently painting. Believe me, its really hard to do in water colour.

Im so happy you did a post on her :)

Wendy said...

The last photo is breathtaking! Thanks for sharing, now I'm going to need to learn more about Courtney.

Heather said...

Oh my god, I was going to ask if these were from the 60s! My favorite kinds of fashion photos are the fuzzy vintage-y ones... and the model looks just like Francoise Hardy!

And Facehunter is totally more stylish than Hollywood, I agree!

Blaze said...

Thanks for sharing Molly! Wow! I am really inspired and excited with her style and confidence. What beautiful, distinct execution!

Sunniva said...

aww..I'm so glad you liked the interview :D I think you're my blogging soulmate too..it's like I'm Ashley and you're my Mary-Kate (or I'm Mary-Kate and you're my Ashley..anyway you get the picture :p)

And I must tell you that after you mentioned Betty Davis and her Anti Love Song, I have been listening to it non-stop for the last 2 days..I love it, Thank you !!
