The internet is the best and most wonderful treasure (for many reasons) but THIS…this is an amazing find! Thanks to the Sartorialist for introducing me to this brilliantly important book, Les Amies de Place Blanche by Christer Stromholm. Finding this gem also makes me miss working at a bookstore and being able to stumble upon these things in real life- really feeling them and taking in that beautiful scent. These photographs explore the transexual tribe of the Place Blanche area of Paris around the 50’s and 60’s. Not only do I love this era, but I love how he captures the essence of their souls…so arresting.
