Sid Avery’s (1918-2002) candid snapshot portraiture offers a glimpse into the off-screen lives of some of the 20th century’s most celebrated icons, including James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, Sophia Loren, Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall, and Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward amongst others. He also famously photographed the original 1960 cast of “Ocean’s Eleven” and later came out of retirement to recreate that photograph with the cast of 2001’s remake. Sid Avery’s portraits hang in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian, and MoMA. His work is available exclusively in California through Dragonette Ltd.
