Brigitte Jelinek. German postcard by Krüger, no. 902/299. Photo: Bernard of Hollywood. (via *European Film Star Postcards*: Bernard of Hollywood)

Elfriede’s naughty sister?
…not sure about that, but the photographer is Bruno Bernard, a german photographer and Jewish Youth Organization activist in Nazi-Germany, fleeing from the Gestapo to Hollywood. After a while he set up a studio and “invented” Pin-Up photography. He was one of the first who took pictures of Marilyn Monroe when she was still Norma Jean.
He is the father of Susan Bernard, an actress who played the role of Linda in Russ Meyers’ Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill!
(Linda is the girlfriend of the guy who is killed by Varla (Tura Satana) with her bare hands and afterwards drugged and kidnapped by her…)

Miroslav Tichy

Tichy was an eccentric. He was held prisoner for almost a decade in Soviet labor camps just for that—being an eccentric, falsely accused of dissidence.

Upon his release in the early 70s he wandered his small town in rags pursuing his voyeuristic obsession with the female form by photographing women unawares in the streets, shops and parks, through windows and fences, with cameras he fashioned out of tin cans, children’s eyeglass lenses and other junk he’d pick up while wandering.

German photographer Martin Klimas drops porcelain martial arts characters from a three meters height and photographs them the moment they hit the ground. The dramatic results give these awesome photos a cinematic feel.
