These stunning photographs taken by Ugo Richard have me doing nothing but wishing I was born back in the glorious Jazz Age; where everyone and everything seemed to be so glamorous, moving to the beat of that Louis Armstrong song while sipping champagne and getting gracefully drunk at that refined party with attendees ranging from the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and the attractive yet self-absorbed Daisy Buchanan to Jordan Baker and her occasionally sarcastic boyfriend Nick Carraway.
Yes, I am referring to The Great Gatsby. The film release based on F. Scott Fitzgerald book has everyone going mad, including me.
I still remember the first time I read that novel, I wasn't really amused at first, but, the more I continued the more mesmerized I felt by every word - the same way I feel when staring at these pictures.
