The Writing Disorder – New YouTube Video

The Writing Disorder presents, a collection of old vintage photographs featuring both readers and writers from places all around the world. These “found” images depict men and women in two of our favorite pastimes — reading and writing. It’s fun to imagine who these people were, what they were thinking, and more importantly, what they where reading or writing at the time. These images may suggest stories of their own, with characters struggling to become writers themselves, or just enjoying a day of leisure with a good book. We will never know.

Dorothy B. Hughes Photograph

I did an online search recently to see if there were any high-resolution images of writer Dorothy B. Hughes (1904–1993). She wrote a lot of great crime and suspense novels, some of which were turned into classic noir films. One of my all-time favorites is In a Lonely Place, the 1950 film directed by Nicholas Ray and starring Humphrey Bogart. And there’s also, Ride the Pink Horse from 1947, which featured Robert Montgomery as both star and director.

Although she had a lot of fame and notoriety, there is currently no biography on Dorothy B. Hughes. And if you do a search for images of her online, all you will find are low-resolution, low-quality images.

So I went and tracked down an original photograph of Dorothy B. Hughes, scanned it, cleaned it up in Photshop, and present it for you here. Enjoy.
