* Shot by Harold Lloyd, silent film legend and acclaimed photographer
* Beautifully framed for display
* Limited edition, numbered fine art photography
Harold Lloyd, known for his work as the top-grossing comedian of Hollywood’s silent film era alongside the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, also had a hobby: “stereoscopic” or three-dimensional photography. By the 1950s, nearly all of the top stars and luminaries including Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield and even General Douglas MacArthur had been captured by Lloyd, as he found his passion behind the camera. He used a twin lens camera, which exposed two frames of film at once, to shoot color photos that ensured the foreground was distinct from the background, and images looked as if they were jumping off the page.
Now you can own a certified, numbered, limited edition (just 495 available) of one of Lloyd’s most exuberant works, “Muscle Beach.” The photograph is an ode to youth and eternal summer, and perfect for your home or office.
Lloyd spent the last few decades of his life traveling the world to pursue his beloved hobby, which interestingly enough, he never considered to be an art form like acting. By the time of his death in 1971, he had shot over 300,000 stereo slides.
“Muscle Beach,” an iconic representation of Lloyd’s realistic, captivating work, is printed on Fuji Crystal Archive paper and is framed in a clean, white wood (19 ½ inches x 15.6 inches). A certificate of authenticity and edition number is featured on the back of the frame.
