TRUMAN CAPOTE in the Christmas Spirit


This wonderful shot was taken by photographer John Dornés. I have a few pages from an old magazine, possibly Look, sent to me by my best friend. There are various photos of famous people dressed in period costumes looking very much like cabinet photos. The photos include Mamie Eisenhower, Johnny Carson, Andy Warhol, Arthur Miller, Bennett Cerf, Senator Jacob Javits, and of course Truman.

The text says Mr. Dornés used antique cameras adapted to use Polaroid film. Unfortunately I cannot find anything about Mr. Dornés nor do I know the date of the magazine. If anyone has any information about this photographer please let me know.
