cornel lucas

'Anouk Aimee is perhaps best known for her roles in a number of films for Fellini, including La Dolce Vita and 8 1/2. She was an especially regal and intelligent woman, and at the same time rather enigmatic too. It's no surprise to me that Anouk went on to marry an actor as intelligent and dominant a personality as Albert Finney.'- cornel lucas

i have just discovered the work of photographer cornel lucas. it is beautiful. this photo of anouk is arresting as in films she had very dark hair. a couple years ago i was in paris wandering around an upscale neighborhood in search of a boutique when anouck walked past. it completely emptied my mind of all thought other then, 'the actress from 'a man and a woman' just walked by!' she was stunning.
