This is Not Porn collects some of the most charming and previously unseen photos of celebrities and legends. From presidents to famous authors to musicians, the array of pictures is overwhelming. Little is known about the original photographers or the whens, wheres, or hows of the photos taken besides what the pictures themselves tell us. It’s a minimalist site that simply displays these rarely seen moments in celebrities lives.
Michael Jackson, Audrey Hepburn, Ernest Hemingway, John F. Kennedy, James Dead, John Lennon, Marlon Brando, Freddie Mercury, and Heath Ledger are only a few of the giants captured in these old photos. Ranging from hilarious to bittersweet, there is something about these pictures so plainly presented that evokes strong emotions from their viewers.
It is amazing to see so many sincere moments archived in one place. Fans of pop culture, photography, or people simply on the search for their former heroes will find a new home in this place.
The site is found here, at a URL that is just as plainly simple yet bombastic as the content itself.
