In 1947, when photographer Willy Rizzo came back from his road trip to the United States, he arrived in France with his suitcases filled with collector film rolls. His photos featured movie stars and tycoons from the film industry taken at the time in the fascinating city of Angels.
These « Made in Hollywood » photos are coming back out in Paris for a real people show. Because all along his career, the French-Italian artist made a number of trips over to the US to photograph well known figureheads: Marilyn Monroe, Sue Lyon, producer Jack Warner, Sean Penn… The long list is to be discovered at the Willy Rizzo Studio.
