American Graffiti

In March I wrote about Dennis Stock’s behind the scenes photos of American Graffiti (one of my favourite movies) for Magnum Photos‘ ‘Magnum on Set’ series.  It was such a joy writing this piece:

Dennis Stock’s photographs of Maila Nurmi, America’s “iconic combination of burlesque pin-up, old Hollywood glamour, and gothic chic.”

I wrote about the iconic Maila Nurmi, better known as the horror hostess Vampira, for Magnum Photos.
