Drawn from the extensive archive of the John Kobal Foundation, this book showcases an extraordinary collection of these hidden photographic gems. Vintage Allies Charmingly odd (and often hilariously homoerotic) reminders of a bygone era-when studio loyalty inspired stars to gamely pose in highly artificial scenarios. www.vulture.com ACC Editions has released a lovely book, Hollywood Unseen, full of black-and-white photography from the archives of the John Kobal Foundation. Kobal, a legendary Hollywood photographer was an expert on the old-school Hollywood portrait and curated multiple exhibitions of this kind of photography. Martha Stewart Living
Reseña del editor
Foreword by Joan Collins Hollywood Unseen is a tribute to the incredible inventiveness and ingenuity of the great Hollywood film studios: Columbia, Paramount, MGM, Universal, Warner Brothers, RKO and Twentieth Century Fox. From the late 1920s to the early 1950s these studios presided over the 'Golden Age of Cinema', and their publicity departments created some of the most stunning and iconic images of Hollywood's stars ever taken. Here, for the first time, are photographs showing the 'ordinary lives' of the stars, including Rita Hayworth, Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe. In reality, these photographs were as carefully constructed and prepared as any classic portrait or scene, and they depicted the actors and actresses exactly as the studios wanted them to be seen. The publicity departments cleverly formed an idealised view of the husbands, wives, children, pets, parties, premieres and hobbies of the stars. Ironically, many of the images were only used once or twice, and were then never seen again. Drawn from the extensive archive of the John Kobal Foundation, this book showcases an extraordinary collection of these hidden photographic gems. John Kobal was an authority on Hollywood portrait photography, who established a preeminent collection of works featuring iconic stars of the day. The Getty Image Library in London will be hosting an exhibition of these images to coincide with the publication of this book.Ver Descripción del producto

In this case, the term 'candid' is a misnomer since those images were carefully staged, scripted, lit and photographed by studio flacks and photogs. Among the candids found in this coffee-table book are shots of Rita Hayworth in her pool, Jimmy Stewart playing with his dogs, Cary Grant & friends at the Venice Amusement Park, Burt Lancaster playing tennis, James Dean relaxing on the GIANT set, Laurel & Hardy signing autographs, Charlie Chaplin & wife out on the town, Robert Montgomery in a flashy roadster, Elizabeth Taylor applying her own make-up, Greer Garson relaxing at home, Ingrid Bergman fishing, Bogie on a bike and Betty Grable on roller skates. There's also a fair amount of glamour shots, on-location pix, cheesecake, etc.
Movie buffs will enjoy this nostalgic trip back to the glory days of Hollywood, featuring, as it does, page after page of well-done, nicely-reproduced images of film legends in their prime. Recommended.
