Hollywood Unseen

The Antique Collector’s Club out of the UK released Hollywood Unseen this month, a gorgeous book of staged publicity shots from the old Hollywood studio system. There is an endless stream of inspiration here in the idealized shots from the John Kobal Foundation. The foundation uses its proceeds to support emerging photographers thru grants for exhibitions and books.
