We all know the much-awaited Baz Luhrmann adaptation of The Great Gatsby opened the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival earlier this week. But did you know that this movie is already the fifth screen adaptation of this F. Scott Fitzgerald classic?
In fact, the first was in 1926 — a silent movie directed by Herbert Brenon and starring Warner Baxter, Lois Wilson and William Powell. It is said to be the most faithful adaptation of the American classic but unfortunately, only the film’s trailer is known to have survived the test of time.
Oh, just look how far it has come!
I don’t know about you, but the differences between the two trailers are simply overwhelming!
Two days from now, Lempertz will hold a sale of 195 photographic prints. The lineup is as varied as the history of photography itself. An 1856 print by an anonymous photographer is in the same group as a top-valued Joseph Szabo shot. A deceptively simple shot of a flower vase is joined by the complex textures of Lucien Hervé. Take a look at the fascinating mix.

She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the New Petval Lens 85 - in this exclusive interview.
