About The Artist:

Avery and Willoughby were contemporaries and were considered photographers to the stars. Sid Avery was known for his candid images of stars at home or in moments of quiet on their busy sets. Bob Willoughby often captured the stars in the midst of the mayhem of their lives - in the middle of a shoot, during a pivotal scene or pushing through crowds of fans.
