book:audrey the 60s

“I am, and forever will be, devastated by the gift Audrey Hepburn before my camera. I cannot lift her to greater heights. She is already there. I can only record. I cannot interpret her. There is no going further than who she is. She has achieved in herself her ultimate portrait.”

I hope that everyone had a lovely holiday season full of merriment and cheer!  To amend my absence I have scans from the book Audrey: The 60s

by David Wills and Stephen Schmidt (available online). My intention is to upload a new picture each day for the entire week.  I was delighted to see a couple of pictures I hadn’t seen before and many familiar photographs that I’ve mostly seen online but not together, collectively, in a book.  I recommend this book to every Audrey fan, the pictures are high quality and accompanied by quotes from Audrey’s peers and friends.
