Adolf de Meyer: Celebrity Photos, Blue Hair and Shimmering Style

This post was originally published on this site

Adolf de Meyer, who pioneered celebrity photography with stars like Josephine Baker and Vaslav Nijinsky, has the hallmarks of a YouTube or Instagram influencer: He took countless pictures, dyed his hair blue, was in thrall to his astrologer and always seemed up for a party.

Forty works from de Meyer’s career, which ran from the 1890s through the 1930s, will go on exhibit starting Dec. 4 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
