Another favorite portrait

Here is another favorite portrait of Louise Brooks. To me, this is an iconic image, and one of the best ever taken of Louise Brooks. Look at it. Look at it.

To me, there is something inherently contradictory about this image. To me, it is intimate in that Brooks' very direct gaze is so intense. And, it is impersonal - Brooks appears as an almost sculptural form, unmoving. To me, this image is perfectly composed.
