Camera Club Girls Art Show









This art show is one we’ll be at for sure this coming Friday evening.

From the Au Boudoir Web site:
“The first public showing of the Rudolph Rossi original photographs of the 1950s. Rossi was an amateur photographer who took part in the informal ‘camera club’ outings around New York City during the early 1950s. Among the models hired for these illegal photography sessions was Bettie Page, where she was discovered. Rossi (along with noted photographer Weegee and others) photographed Page and dozens of her friends…”

The photographs were hand-colored, and more photos can be seen in the book Camera Club Girls: Bettie Page, Her Friends and the Work of Rudolph Rossi, by Jim Linderman.  The author’s blog is Vintage Sleaze,
