1930s Sun Worshipers

 This past weekend I picked up a large 'coffee table' book called Pools by Kelly Klein. These are some wonderful shots of pools in this book and along with that goes swimwear, so I've been scanning some of my favorite images to share with you. The image above is by one of my favorite photographers, Louise Dahl Wolfe. This shot was taken in 1930. It mesmerizes me, that image takes me away and makes me want to be laying in the sun like that

This second image is called Nude with Parasol by Martin Munkacsi, taken in 1935. Isn't it wonderful? The semi sheer parasol, the layout, the subject matter. I've done another post with Martins work here.

Thank you Martin, we'll be looking at more of your work soon!
