Vanity Fair Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra

If you haven't done so already, remember there's only just over a month to go (ends 30th August) to visit the Vanity Fair Photographs Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra.

Although quite heavy on modern subjects, there's a wonderful selection of older images ... 1934 portraits of Bette Davis, Jean Harlow, and Cary Grant, also the classic 1924 photo of a veiled Gloria Swanson, a delectable 1930 portrait of Anna May Wong, and Louise Brooks from 1929
... the stories that accompany these classic images are intriguing too.
