Hemingway Publicity Photo
Hemingway, 1928, in a photo taken by Helen Breaker. This was one of a group of publicity photos that his publisher - Scribners - wanted taken. According to Dorothy Parker, women who saw these pictures turned "all of a quiver," and she worried that their publication drew too much attention away from Hemingway's virtues as a writer.
