Audrey Hepburn Walking Umbrella Portrait

Leo Fuchs manages to capture Audrey Hepburn looking unaffected by the 130-degree heat of the Belgian Congo.  Unlike some of her co-stars who suffered heatstrokes, Audrey credited her nun’s habit with protecting her from the heat during filming. She did, however succumb to a terrible case of kidney stones upon returning to Rome to finish the arduous 132-day shoot.  Once fully recovered, Audrey finished The Nun’s Story and was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her performance as Sister Luke. Photographed in 1958.

Leo Fuchs is a Hollywood veteran who spent 20 years (1944 -1965) shooting some of the most moving and memorable images of ´50s and ´60s film icons. He had a major retrospective at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the Oscar academy) in Los Angeles in 2001. “Shooting Stars: Photographs by Leo Fuchs,” included photographs taken on and off the sets of such legendary films as Exodus,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” The Nun’s Story, Cape Fear, and Lover Come Back.

Although Fuchs spent over twenty years as a motion picture producer, beginning with Gambit in 1966, his introduction to movie making came during the previous decades as one of the world’s leading “special photographers” on movie sets in Europe and North America. As a magazine photographer, he was one of the rare outsiders invited onto movie sets and left to his own devises to befriend movie stars and get candid shots both during shooting, and after hours while socializing with the stars. The resulting photographs, both intimate and immediate in their appeal, were then syndicated to magazines the world over. His sensitive and dramatic photographic essays of filmmaking appeared in such venerable publications as Life, Look, Paris Match, Bunte.

Film icons Audrey Hepburn, Paul Newman, Gregory Peck, Sean Connery, Shirley MacLaine, Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando and Cary Grant, as well as such legendary directors as Billy Wilder, Otto Preminger and Fred Zinnemann were all captured by Fuchs camera.
