On My Bookshelf: Hollywood Unseen

Posted by

Hollywood Unseen Dust Jacket

Before paparazzi and trashy magazines splashed the intimate details of celebrities' lives on every newsstand in sight, Hollywood studios could still shape the public's perception of stars. Staged publicity shot could make them look outdoorsy and rugged or innocent and sweet, but always glamourous. 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. These beautiful images make me yearn for the cinema stars of yesteryear.

The lovely Joan Collins, above, wrote the books foreword. Indulge in the Hollywood glamour for $75.
