Bicycle Street by Melvin Sokolsky, Paris 1963
Melvin Sokolsky (more photos)  is one of the great pioneers in the creation of visual imagery. With no formal training, his photographic education came purely from instinct, desire, and careful observation. He took up an all-consuming regimen of photographic experimentation with a singular focus and determination that have since become his trademark process.

Dolores Costello by Alfred Cheney Johnston sometime in 1920’s
Alfred Cheney Johnston was born in New York City on April 8, 1885. He started experimenting with photography by taking portraits of friends and fellow students attending his art classes at National Academy of Design in New York City where he studied to be an illustrator. Alfred applied the knowledge and principles he’d absorbed from his painting classes to his portrait photography. Johnston’s photographs were indeed very painterly and throughout his life many would compare his photographic technique to that of fine art painting.
Dolores Costello was once known as the Goddess of the Silent Screen but is probably best remembered today as Drew Barrymore's grandmother. Dolores appeared in numerous pictures throughout the 1910s and the early 1920s, mostly with her father - Maurice Costello and sister - Helena Costello. She later appeared on the New York stage with her sister in “George White Scandals of 1924”. They were then signed by Warners Bros. where Dolores met future husband John Barrymore
