About the artist
Dennis Stock (1928-2010) evokes the spirit of America through his iconic portraits of Hollywood stars, most notably James Dean and Audrey Hepburn. In 1947 he became an apprentice to Life magazine photographer Gjon Mili and won first prize in ‘Life's Young Photographers’ contest. He joined Magnum in 1951. From 1957 to 1960 Stock photographed some of the world’s most celebrated jazz musicians, including Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Sidney Bechet, Gene Krupa and Duke Ellington for his book ‘Jazz Street’. Stock generated a book or an exhibition almost every year since the 1950s. He exhibited his work widely in France, Germany, Italy, the United States and Japan. He worked as a writer, director and producer for television and film, and his photographs have been acquired by most major museum collections. He served as president of Magnum's film and new media division in 1969 and 1970.
