Earl Forbes
Patron saint of amateur photographers and master of happy accident, Earl Forbes took his most exquisite photographs with a Kodak Brownie camera that cost him $2.95. Because of his camera's limitations, Forbes achieved a dramatic quality in the style of Townsend and Lynes, without out the ponderous preparations of his peers. Although Forbes photographed his models almost exclusively in the nude, most of his photographs were published only in physique magazines and therefore images without the painted posing strap are somewhat rare.
