Alfred Cheney Johnston - Ziegfeld Follies Girls

During decades, Alfred Cheney Johnston was the official photograph of the Ziegfeld Follies (all you want to know about it here) and although the exercise was rather codified, some of his shots have a very troubling inner modernity. It's like these girls live today and the usual time distance due to the way pictures are taken is not present on these ones. Yes the second one is actually Louise Brooks. Click on them as usual to see them full size.
