Sid Avery’s candid snapshot portraiture offers a glimpse into the off-screen lives of some of the 20th century’s golden-age Hollywood’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.

Sid Avery 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 early photographs appeared in many magazines, among them the Saturday Evening Post, Look, and Colliers and his portraits hang in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian, and MoMA.
