Proud Chelsea presents Bob Willoughby: The Silver Age of Hollywood, an exquisite homage to the man widely credited with inventing the photojournalistic motion picture still. The first “outside” photographer to be hired by studios to document the filming of their movies and in essence capture the soul of each film, Willoughby’s photographs dominated the pages of culture and lifestyle magazines throughout the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. This prestigious collection of limited edition, signed, silver gelatin prints features stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Sean Connery, Frank Sinatra, and James Dean in front of and behind the camera in some of their most iconic motion pictures.
