Audrey teams up with Sinatra in California.
February 7, 2016
George Douglas lived for half his long life in the glamorous California seaside town of Santa Monica. It was where he taught himself photography with the help of his battered old second-hand Leica camera. It was also where he took some of his classic shots of Hollywood stars like Jane Russell, Angela Lansbury and Peter Lawford when he ran into them sunning themselves on the beach near his mother’s appartment.
Now a selection of stunning silver gelatin prints of his portraits of Audrey Hepburn, by master printer Robin Bell, have been purchased and displayed by the Peter Fetterman Gallery of Santa Monica.
The gallery is only a short walk from George’s old home. He would have been so proud to see his work showcased in the town he loved. His favourite image of Audrey in New York (second from left, second row) has just spent four months starring in Fetterman’s exhibition FRANK SINATRA AND AUDREY HEPBURN. A LIFE IN PICTURES. which opened on 3 November last year and finished this weekend on 6 February 2016.
It was a huge success, the whole show was a fantastic window on the world of two of the most stylish stars of the 20th Century. And the Audrey portraits are still at the gallery to be enjoyed by anyone lucky enough to be able to drop in and browse the gorgeous Fetterman collection.
