Beautiful Photos of Celebrities Taken by Leo Fuchs in the 1950s and ’60s

Leo Fuchs is a Hollywood veteran who spent over 40 years shooting some of the most moving and memorable images ever made of the 1950s and ’60s film icons. His introduction to moviemaking came as one of the world’s leading “special photographers” on movie sets in Europe and North America.

Gina Lollobrigida, Brigitte Bardot, and Elke Sommer were taken by Leo Fuchs in the 1950s and ’60s

Starting as a freelance magazine photographer, Fuchs was one of the rare outsiders invited onto movie sets, where he often befriended actors, actresses, 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 gave up photography in 1964 and spent the next 20 years as a motion picture producer. These beautiful photos are part of his work that Fuchs took portraits of celebrities from the 1950s and 1960s.
