Garbo, portraits for Camille, by Clarence Sinclair Bull, 1936



Clarence Sinclair Bull (May 22, 1896, Sun River, Montana - June 8, 1979, Los Angeles), one of the greatest portrait photographers of "Golden Age" Hollywood.  He was the head of the stills department at MGM for almost forty years, and was Garbo's preferred photographer for nearly her entire American career, from 1926 to 1941.

Though you see very little of it in these "head shots", the gown is by Adrian.

  1. Rarely has the camera loved a face like the camera loved hers. What bone structure. She was a living sculpture. Thanks for sharing.
