9780956648754: Hurrell: The Kobal Collection

"A Hurrell portrait is to the ordinary publicity still about what a Rolls-Royce is to a roller-skate." Esquire, 1936.
George Hurrell is one of the greatest portrait photographers of Hollywood's Golden Age. His strong contrast black and white images and groundbreaking use of negative retouching revolutionized the medium of Hollywood portraiture during the 1930s and 1940s.

This lavish book captures the enduring glamour of his photography and presents the very finest reproductions of his work yet seen in print. It features several unseen images of cinema's most iconic faces. All images have been taken from The Kobal Collection. One of the most distinguished archives of classic Hollywood imagery in the world, it has the largest collection of Hurrell material in existence.

About the Author:

Tony Nourmand is the co-founder of Reel Art Press and editor of all R|A|P publications. He is also the author of a further sixteen best-selling books on entertainment-related imagery, including James Bond Movie Posters and Audrey Hepburn: The Paramount Years.

Phil Moad is the Research Manager for The Kobal Collection film photo archive. He is a world authority on the Hollywood studio photographers and has helped picture edit over sixty books.

Review:

"Thanks to the high-quality prints used in this edition, you can look at a close-up of Crawford and count each outlandish eyelash... distinguish individual follicles in Bogart's famous stubble; even discern the marbled opalescent texture of Jimmy Stewart's pupils as he gazes off the page." - The Wall Street Journal

"George Hurrell gave the Golden Age of Hollywood its glossy sheen and soft-focus seductiveness." - The Independent

"Few photographers truly manage to capture a zeitgeist - fewer still create one... A fascinating visual commentary on Hollywood at its peak." - Port

"As the foremost portrait photographer in Hollywood, he gave its stars their sheen of grace and mystery." - The Telegraph
