We are all familiar with that wave of
nostalgia that hits when you dust up an old photo album and go through the grimy textured photos. I used to have one such album, not for myself, but for celebrities. A book where I would stick cutouts (you’d call it vintage photos now) and drop in a small fact about the celebrity below it. So now my brain is puddled with the most random of facts on people I have nothing to do with.
But it’s this emotion through which we have connected with our artists and admired their works. The behind the screens. Stars setting aside their characters and sharing laughs. Unseen vintage photos that give you unexpected jolts of joy. I’m pretty sure it’s not just me who feels this way, so here you go.
