Louise Brooks is my heroine. Not sure why because it could be said that she completely messed up her life good style but I admire her hedonistic, “don’t give a shit” attitude. She was instinctive, intelligent, free and impossibly beautiful and cool. The ultimate flapper…maybe.
Why I went to Berlin last year I was hoping to channel some of her “Lulu in Berlin”-ishness. Unfortunately, flu put paid to that.
I’ve collected Louise Brooks memorabilia for several years now and after dabbling with having a fansite (too much work) and all that, I finally decided to just upload the whole sorry mess onto my flickr.
