Can anyone please identify who is the photographer of this picture and what is the name of the picture?

It appears taken in middle of 20th century (1950s?) in a rural place. It looks like summer. A young blonde girl is lying naked on a chair, in front of a window. Outside the window there is a yellow field and in the back, after the field, there is a man standing next to a blue car. The style is painting-like, and it's hard to tell if it's even really a photograph in the low-quality jpeg image I've found.

This is the photograph, which may not be "workplace safe", as it contains some nudity: http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/5558/pic025v.jpg

  • \$\begingroup\$ @mattdm haven't voted myself, but I can see that the question is on borderline of image recognition, which is generally considered off topic (even by yourself) - see meta.photo.stackexchange.com/questions/1283/… \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Imre: there's a huge difference between what is this photograph in art history and what is this bug I took a picture of? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @mattdm - Personally, I think its too localized - and thats how I voted. I don't think its offtopic. I think its unlikely another user would ever be able to find the question - even in the incredibly unlikely event that they had the exact same question. There was some chat discussion. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm voting to close this question because, while I strongly believe it was on topic when asked, the link is now dead, making it pretty much useless. \$\endgroup\$

Just do an image search with google on that url


and it will offer to search by image.

Which results in:

Best guess for this image: Saul Leiter

and, following some of the results, the title "Lanesville, 1958".

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank you! I didn't know that google images could do reverse image search. I tried tineye.com for that but with no result. Thanks again! \$\endgroup\$ Aug 22, 2011 at 7:16
