Silver Gelatin

I love George Hurrell. Ok, the love isn't that deep for him personaly - but I absolutely love his work.

Ran into a site for The Hudson River Museum's "Hurrell's Men" display from late last year. Some nice sample photos & a good write-up. My fav:

"From the androgynous perfection of Ramon Navarro to the brutish bulk of Wallace Beery, the tailored elegance of Robert Montgomery or the classic profile of John Barrymore, Hurrell’s men exude an unmistakable masculine energy balanced by the perfection of surface."

And no, there's nothing Hurrell for sale in their gift shop (I checked).
