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.
