A Summer Album



As we head into the 4th of July weekend, a summer album of photographs that are either cool or cooling or hopefully both!

Above one of my favorite anonymous pictures - a summer picnic in which the photographer has resourcefully included herself.

Below - taken at the Central Park Zoo by Magnum photographer, Thomas Hoepker.





Irving Penn's "Frozen Food".



Edward Weston's refreshing photograph of his wife, Charis.



Ryan McGinley's "Dakota".



A rare Giacomelli of the "pretini" (student priests) taken in the summer of 1968.



Arthur Elgort's "5th Avenue".



Elizabeth Taylor by Roddy McDowell.



Steve and Neile McQueen by John Dominis.



A great tennis shot from the current Wimbledon. Unfortunately I
did not note the player or photographer when I grabbed the j-peg. Apologies to both.

That Irving Penn is one of my favorites. Fyi, that's Ryan McGinley's photo "Dakota" up there, not McGinness.
