Classique Photo

Gleb Derujinsky, 1888-1975
Although it may not be apparent, I have always had a fascination towards classic, black and white photography. There is something so authentic and elegant about a photograph being in two tones; even the models have this effortless beauty that is hard to be captured in our era. I stumbled upon Gleb Derujinsky's first photograph when I was looking for an icon for my work communication system and it has struck me as one of my favorite pictures. It was only until recently that I found Gleb's other timeless works, some of which were featured in Harper's Bazaar.
