Bob Willoughby - Leprechaun with a Leica

The Independent is running an interesting piece on Bob Willoughby called "Bob Willoughby: Hollywood's first behind the scenes photographer." He was given a camera for his 12th birthday and studied cinema at the University of Southern California, worked under the renowned film-maker Saul Bass at the Kahn Institute of Art while doing apprenticeships with a number of Hollywood photographers. He'd go on to change the way that movie stars are photographed today in the 1950s and 1960s. Check out his Beetles + Huxley exhibition, which runs September 16 through October 4, 2014 in London.
