Photographers from the John Kobal Foundation
10th October - 3rd November
Drawn from the extensive archive of the John Kobal Foundation, Hollywood Unseen showcases photographs seemingly showing the 'ordinary lives' of the stars, including Rita Hayworth, Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe. Featuring a number of previously unseen images, the exhibition shows some of the many ways that the Hollywood movie studio publicists strived, not always successfully, to create the right image for a star which would appeal to the movie going public.
Simon Crocker, Chairman of the John Kobal Foundation says "We have a longstanding relationship with Getty Images who not only represent our archive but were also a major sponsor of the John Kobal Photographic Portrait Award. So the Gallery is a perfect showcase for us to exhibit some of the images from our new book"
