    I hadn't known he was a camera fiend!

    everyday_i_show: photos by Yul Brynner (there is one female nude, fyi)

    Includes a self-portrait with a Leica.

    I think my favorite is the 1959 shot of Elizabeth Taylor.

    I'm not one much for celebrities, but these are fantastic candids, and you can't help but appreciate seeing a little private from these (overly) public lives.

    Very nice to see, thanks so much. I knew Yul Brynner was a painter, but didn't know about the photographic side of his creativity. There are some excellent images in there, irregardless of who they are.
  7. He was a talented, well versed man.

    More and more fascinated with the "Golden Age" of film.
