George Hurrell is a man who truly enjoyed all the rides of life and lived life in detail. He took the time to get thing done right, no rushes, no mundane worries. I have much to learn from him, not only as a photographer, but as a human being. I picked up the book expecting photography examples of Hurrell's work from which I could reverse engineer his lighting. While the book is filled with wonderful photographs, it is much more. The text includes interesting bits about the shoot itself - how he interacted with the subject to get the desired look.

This book presents in depth the work of George Hurrell, the photographer who more than anyone else was responsible for inventing the Hollywood "glamour" portrait - the essential publicity tool for the major studios during the Golden Age of the movies. During that time he photographed all of the greatest personalities, at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Warner Brothers, and Columbia as well as independently.

George Hurrell Biography . The man dubbed the Grand Seigneur of the Hollywood Portrait, was born in Covington, KY, across the river from Cincinnati, in 1904. By the time he was eight, young George Hurrell had developed an interest in painting and drawing. During the last years of his life, Hurrell worked with producer J. Grier Clarke and producer-director Carl Colby on Legends in Light, the first major retrospective of his work. George Hurrell died of cancer in 1992.

Rediscovered during the 1970s, he enjoyed a brief second career, and his work was the subject of several monographs, including The Hurrell Style: 50 Years of Photographing Hollywood (1976) and Hurrell's Hollywood Portraits: The Chapman Collection (1997). Hurrell revolutionized Hollywood portraiture between 1925 and 1950 through his ability to capture and create the glamour, allure, and celebrity of his subjects. Reflections in a Glass Eye: Works from the International Center of Photography Collection, New York: Bulfinch Press in association with the International Center of Photography, 1999, p. 218.

This spectacular book is the perfect representation of Hurrell's work. He was a ONE IN A MILLION Hollywood photographer and this book has really nice copies of his most famous shots. The supplier/seller also saw to it that it arrived carefully packaged so the corners weren't damaged in shipping! It will live happily on my coffee table....many thanks!

Should get ZERO stars! I received this as a gift and the book dust jacket is torn and frayed, yellowed. The glue holding the book together is completely dried, hence the binding is BROKEN IN HALF with pages FALLING OUT. This book is a hot mess. If you want a Hurrell book get the beautiful Kobal Collection as it has almost all of the images contained in this book and is a much higher quality. Instead of stars, there should be a five thumbs DOWN!!

I must confess that before I went to college I have never heard of George Hurrell before. My first approach to his work was when I was at Brooks studying photography. I was amazed by his work, the glamour of it, his lighting techniques, and of course, his talent. To me, what 's even more amazing is the great shots he got with a 8X10" camera, which is somewhat complex to maneuver.

This book is a true gem, not only because of the photos in it, but because of the texts. Through them you get to know more about his life, how he got started, with whom did he work most, his freelance periods, how he worked, what he got out of every shot, how he got the best poses out of this people, etc. I purchased another book of his work like 20 years ago, but it only had large photos, no texts. And even though I enjoy looking at it from time to time, I totally loved this book of him. I guess I'll be reading it many more times in the future.

When I finished it I was really moved by the incredible passion this man had for his work. He really enjoyed and loved photography to its full extent. The up's and downs, the rewards, the pleasure of it, the whole package. I rescue a phrase of his that says "...We were talented, we were working, we all assumed we'd make money, so we didn't worry and fret about it like they do today...we were too busy being alive. We were children of the gods..."

And he was so very right. George Hurrell is a man who truly enjoyed all the rides of life and lived life in detail. He took the time to get thing done right, no rushes, no mundane worries. I have much to learn from him, not only as a photographer, but as a human being. Like him, I should focus more on being alive and enjoying life, than worrying about keeping the pace with a world of people whose main concern is pointless accumulation of stuff (everything fits in here).
