Bob Willoughby received his first break in 1954 when Warner Brothers asked him to photograph Judy Garland on the set of A Star Is Born, for Life Magazine. Willoughby’s career went from strength to strength from that point on and he quickly became one of the most sought after photographers of his time.

Willoughby was the first outside’ photographer employed by studios to document the making of films. His work forms a visual who’s who of cinema, rock and jazz music, theatre and dance over 20 years. He covered the making of over 100 films including The Graduate, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf and My Fair Lady, and had a unique ability to capture the individual essence of each film he documented. His sitters include Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, Dustin Hoffman, Chet Baker, Elvis Presley and The Rat Pack.

Our exhibition will include iconic images of a multitude of stars from the 1950s and 60s, including Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft on the set of The Graduate, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra casually playing Blackjack at the Sands Hotel, Las Vegas, Audrey Hepburn between takes on the set of My Fair Lady, Chet Baker recording the music for My Funny Valentine and the great saxophonist Big Jay McNeely in concert.

Both a star behind the camera and technical innovator in front of it, Willoughby’s photographs were never out of print during his 20 year career in films. As a testament to this his photographs are currently held in permanent collections at the National Portrait Gallery in both London and Washington DC, as well as many other significant international photography institutions around the world.

Greg Sand: Altered Memory

Artists statement: My work is about memory, the passage of time, mortality and the photograph’s role in shaping our experience of loss. Photography’s unique ability to capture a fleeting moment allows it to expose the temporality of life. “By giving me the absolute past of the pose… the photograph tells me death in the future… I shudder over a catastrophe which has already occurred.” These words from Roland Barthes’s Camera Lucida describe how I feel when I view a photograph so old that the subject must be dead. My response has a number of layers: I feel an immediate connection to the living person in the photograph, followed by a dread of what inevitably is to come for them, completed by a sense of grief over what has, of course, already transpired. This reaction is why the majority of my work utilizes found photographs, which I manipulate to create an abstract narrative exploring mortality. My work aims to question the nature of photographs and challenge the traditional definition of photography.
