Leo Fuchs is a Hollywood veteran who shot some of the most moving and memorable images of 1950s and 60s film icons ever made. Fuchs’ introduction to moviemaking came as one of the world’s leading “special photographers” on movie sets in Europe and North America. Starting as a freelance magazine photographer, he was one of the rare outsiders invited onto movie sets, where he often developed life–long relationships with the actors and filmmakers and captured candid shots both during shooting and after hours while socializing with the stars.
With the support of his dear friend Cary Grant, Fuchs left photography behind in 1964 and spent the next 20 years as a motion picture producer.
These intimate photographs from Hollywood’s undisputed heyday remained unseen until they were recently uncovered after 30 years in storage
Leo captured private intimate moments of some of the most iconic Hollywood Stars of the Golden Age.
The Leo Fuchs Archives continues to mine the 500,000 negatives and over 10,000 prints Leo took during his prolific photographic career.
