Whilst searching for something else – lord only knows what, my fragile mind only has so much RAM – I stumbled upon these fantastic Milton Greene portraits of Audrey Hepburn from 1951. One google led to another, and eventually I remembered that I actually have a pinterest board dedicated to contact sheets like this. Artefacts of the analogue photographic period, they may not have been intended as the finished product, but for me they stand as a medium in their own right. Artist and subject exposed, they’re more animated and honest than a single shot; posing and staging and editing captured in a place where sequential art meets cinéma vérité. Anyway, a few of my favourites (pics link to pins):
