For me it was James Dean. It was 1955 and my mom loved him. So like today, baby names tend to follow what’s popular at the time, whether inspired from movies or musical artists. I did not know a lot about him, nor have I seen a lot of his movies. I just know he died young at the age of 24, in 1955 the year I was born. What I did know, was that he liked to take photographs, something I would like to explore more.But here, thanks to Vintag.es website there are several photos of him with camera, and stories he was a good photographer. Anyway, this is my brush with celebrity.Need to explore more. What’s your story?
