For the first time ever, take a look at the photographs taken in 1967 during the filming of the Planet of the Apes. Stock’s current exhibition includes a variety of pictures of filmmakers themselves, including Orson Welles, George Lucas, and a much younger Ron Howard.
The period Stock spent photographing celebrities such as Dean, Billie Holiday, and Duke Ellington was followed by his being set loose to photograph on the first Planet of the Apes set in 1967. When asked what was developing in his mind when he took this shot, Stock remembers thinking that “the attention to detail you expect when [makeup artists] work on a star is one thing, but the attention when they work on an extra…I found that very amusing. The hairdresser and the makeup artist, so focused on this small person in the ape costume.”
Exhibition at Colette from January 7th until 26th.
