Gorgeous Portrait Photos of Silent Movie Stars Taken by Max Munn Autrey

Born 1891 in Dallas, Texas, Max M. Autrey was a still photographer on four films including "Modern Times" with Charlie Chaplin.

Autrey took lots of photographs of silent-movie stars in the 1920s for Fox Studio, including of Clara Bow, Myrna Loy, Jeanette MacDonald... He was mainly a portrait photographer for the Witzel Photography Studio in Downtown L.A. between the 1920s and 50s, noted for the glamour styles of the subjects and clientele which graced his work, especially those identified in the realm of motion pictures.

The soft, delicate shadow of a tree in the latter portrait represented a trickle-down effect from the art photography movement known as Pictorialism. His works have become popular even appearing at museum shows alongside some of the greats like Hurrell.

He died in 1971 in Los Angeles, California at the age of 80.
