Dorothy Wilding ( 1893-1976)

Dorothy Wilding(ou plutôt était) la plus célèbre photographe  de Grande-Bretagne. En fait, elle a été la première femme à recevoir un mandat royal pour être le photographe officiel de la Reine Roi lors de leur couronnement, et une de ses photographies de la reine actuelle (connu sous le nom   «Portrait Wilding») a été utilisé pour une série de timbres en Grande-Bretagne, utilisé entre 1953 et 1967. Elle a travaillé principalement dans le Studio sur Bond Street ( d’abord chez celui  Marian Neilson ,où elle a débuté en tant qu’ apprentie, puis dans son propre studio) , et en 1937 en a ouvert un autre à New York. Elle est surtout connue pour ses compositions linéaires lumineuses photographiées sur un fond blanc. Son autobiographie en quête de perfection a été publié en 1958

Ce n’est pas du tout les portrait des têtes couronnés que je vous présente aujourd’hui, mais des portraits de célébrités ( danseuses actrices..)  de l’époque ainsi que des nus comme d’habitude,  r2alisés entre 1920 et 1930.
