Audrey Hepburn, 60s icon.
Audrey Hepburn charmed audiences in the 1950s as a new type of
cinema personality-gamine, doe-eyed, and refreshingly casual. By
the 1960s she had transformed into a trendsetting sophisticate and
achieved unrivaled careers as an actress, model, movie star, and
champion for underprivileged children worldwide. Curator and
photographic preservationist David Wills has amassed one of the
world''s largest private collections of original Audrey Hepburn
photographs. Now, in Audrey: The 60s, he has gathered
spectacular museum-quality work from her key photographers-Richard
Avedon, Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, William Klein,
Terry O''Neill, Howell Conant, Bob Willoughby, Pierluigi Pratulon,
Bud Fraker, and many others-to create this stunning portfolio of
images that pays homage to the most beloved and enduring style icon
of the "decade of change."
Among the highlights:
- Rare and classic images digitally restored from their original
negatives and transparencies.
- Never-before-seen publicity photos and candids from the sets of
Breakfast at Tiffany''s, Charade, My Fair Lady, How to Steal a
Million, and Two for the Road.
- Unpublished outtakes and rarely seen images from Vogue fashion
sessions, some not published since their original appearance.
- Previously unpublished photos by Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton,
Douglas Kirkland, William Klein, Howell Conant, Bob Willoughby,
Pierluigi Pratulon, and many others.
Pairing more than two hundred first-generation photos with
reflections and original quotes from friends, photographers,
designers, work associates, and Audrey herself, Audrey: The
60s is an unforgettable showcase of the actress''s timeless
beauty and extraordinarily influential style.
