“If the cover shot of Paul Newman isn’t bait enough to buy, the ensuing collection of behind-the-scenes images of Tinseltown’s greatest generation (Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, Marlon Brando) snapped by Hollywood veteran photog and producer Leo Fuchs should reel you in.”
“This beautifully produced coffee-table volume shares…vivid, candid portraits by Leo Fuchs, a ‘special photographer’ (and later a producer) who gained the trust of, and won extraordinary access to, some of Hollywood's biggest stars of the 1950s and early '60s.”
Top Customer Reviews
Special Photographer was a fantastic birthday present. Thank you!
Fuchs's beginnings as a Betty Page-style glamour photographer, shooting risqué pinups, just makes him all the more appealing as a character. The first photographs in the book are of fifties pin-ups in New York City and they are a delight - sweet, humorous and clearly taken by an artist. All in all this book is a wonderful thing to have. Open it up at any page and you are transported to another era, before the internet, before vietnam, when Hollywood and America were at their peak.
If you love the stars of old Hollywood, you will love this book.
