The vintage photographer – Gordon Ayres

The vintage photographer – Gordon Ayres

Vintage photographer Gordon Ayres has been photographing the Thirties, Forties and Fifties vintage scene for over 20 years.

His stunning photographs truly capture the spirit of the golden age of Hollywood, old Vogue covers and Film Noir.

Using techniques culled from the classic Hollywood period, Ayres finds inspiration in both the studio glamour photographers of the time, and the grainy reportage style of the dime newspaper reporters. His use of quality vintage lens and studio lamps create the exact feel of the look of the Twenties to Fifties for whatever the occasion.

Film Noir is an inspiration for scene set shots, and similar lighting suits the exotic allure of burlesque and smoky night-club musician photographs. By contrast the elegance of Vogue-magazine – style portraits of ladies with hats and gloves at a Paris cafe or snaps of people in evening clothes at a Swiss hotel in the Thirties – give an impression of a bygone era.
