Finding vintage treasures is always on my mind. I have been doing this for years and I have gone through thousands and thousands of pretty things. From dresses to kitchenary; finding that one special item what it's all about. One of the routines I find very soothing, is running my fingers through a huge bin of antique pictures. How I love staring at vintage faces and scenes from the past... It's just one of the best past times if you'd ask me. Of course I have a weakness for every picture with fashion on it. But I am also very much intrigued by early 20th century portraits because the people in the portraits are always so dead serious. And very groomed I might add. Which I understand... taking pictures in the beginning of the 20th century had to be a true undertaking. You had to sit still for a long time, and since the possibility of digital selection and photoshop was non existent, I can imagine one always trying to look their absolute best. With that in mind, I was suprised by this portrait.
