The Silver Age of HollywoodCredited with inventing the photo journalistic motion picture still, Bob Willoughby was the first outside photographer to be hired by a studio specifically to take publicity images. With this all-areas access to Hollywood's elite, he became known for his artfully informal pieces. The Silver Age of Hollywood displays intimate behind-the-scenes photos from films such as 'The Graduate', 'Rebel without a Cause', 'My Fair Lady' and 'Ocean's Eleven'. It will showcase some of Willoughby's most evocative images, among which include a striking image of James Dean studying a script, a beautiful Natalie Wood caught off guard and a meditative Jane Fonda as she practices her lines. The exhibition will also include Willoughby's first photograph of Audrey Hepburn, a snapshot of a pre-Bond Sean Connery and an image of Frank Sinatra a year before he married Mia Farrow.
