Happy Sunday!

Today I’m sharing with you some amazing photographs taken by Ken Russell who was a photographer/film director known for his controversial body of work especially in film.

A few weeks ago, I went to the Proud Gallery in Chelsea,  to check out an exhibition called ‘Reality is a Dirty Word’ that explored the lives of people in post-war London in the 1950’s.

Russell examined the city during a time of great uncertainty, and was able to do so with a hint of tragic humor which is what I love about the photographs.
