Film Series: “Imagining Photographers on Film”

Movies make indelible impressions on us and shape how we imagine a host of glamorous professionals, such as detectives, painters, and starlets. Be they surrounded by gorgeous models, contending with high-strung editors, or involved in high-stakes intrigue, career photographers make fascinating protagonists. Inspired by the exhibition Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty, we invite you to three classic films that offer very different visions of photographers’ lives.

 

Friday, March 10, 7:00 p.m.
Funny Face

Frist Center Auditorium
Free; first come, first seated

Starring Fred Astaire as a dapper fashion photographer and Audrey Hepburn as an intellectual book-clerk-turned-model, Funny Face (1957) is a delightful musical romp through New York and Paris. In this technicolor send-up of the fashion industry, Astaire’s Dick Avery is modeled on the famous photographer Richard Avedon, whose beautiful photographs appear in the title sequence. Join us for this ode to the fashion photographer as a suave and sophisticated aesthete.
