If you’ve enjoyed photos of Marlon Brando from the mid 1950s (most notably on the sets of The Wild One and Guys and Dolls) you’ve no doubt enjoyed the fantastic photography of Mr. Phil Stern. A legend in the business of celebrity photography from Hollywood’s golden era, a google images search will take you down a rabbit hole of beauty to occupy a weekend (or better yet, check out his official website, philsternarchives.com). Hollywood aside, Mr. Stern was a decorated war veteran and a true artist far beyond the sparkling glitz of tinseltown. An inspiration if ever there was one. RIP Phil Stern.
