Bob Willoughby (1927-2009) took his first photo at the age of twelve. By 1954 his exhibitions of photographs of jazz musicians and dancers led to a contract with Globe Photos, followed by work at Harper's Bazaar. After shooting Judy Garland during the filming of A Star is Born he became the first "unit photographer"-hired specifically by movie studios to take on-set promotional "stills". The author of numerous books on photography, he lived his last years in Vence, France.
With one of Hollywood's greatest studio photographers behind the camera-and its most beautiful actress in front of it-Bob Willoughby's picture-perfect Audrey Hepburn book is a real collector's item. * Sunday Express *
