Diane Von Furstenburg. So glamorous.

I believe that she's pictured here with Egon Von Furstenburg, but not sure who the guy on the left is.

"Colour Pencils" by Jonna Pohjalainen, 2006. See details here.

One of my favorite photographs. It was in a book that I knew as a kid. I loved looking at her stockings and those feathered rocking chairs on her table.

The photo is by Ernest Bellocq, who was a professional portrait photographer in New Orleans. When he died, his more personal/private work was discovered, which were photos of prostitutes who worked and lived in the red-light district known as "Storyville."

Here is more info about his life and about Storyville and here is more about his work.
