"If I'd realized what a wonderful photographer you were, and how nice McCalls was about doing a story -- I never would have been the jittery subject I was.” -- Jackie Kennedy 1954 (from a letter to Orlando Suero)

Orlando Suero (*1925) started snapping photos with the Kodak Jiffy his father gave him in 1939. He later attended NY Institute of Photography and worked at camera shops and photo labs including Compo Photo Color where he printed the images for Edward Steichen’s monumental exhibition, The Family of Man. One of his first assignments was to spend five days in May 1954 with newlyweds, Jackie and Senator John F. Kennedy at their Georgetown duplex, documenting their everyday lives. This was the beginning of a successful career shooting some of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood, among them Natalie Wood, Brigitte Bardot, Michael Caine, Sharon Tate, Paul Newman, Julie Andrews, Jack Nicholson, and Dennis Hopper. Because of his friendly and unaffected approach, his subjects opened up to him and his camera in a way not many others have been able to accomplish.

This monograph contains many never-before seen images of celebrities from the 1950’s to the 1980’s that have been sitting in storage for 40-50 years.
