Southampton has been and is home to many of the world's leading artists but few have had the impact on fashion and beauty as did the late Francesco Scavullo
, one of America's greatest photographers and portraitists. For over 50 years, Scavullo captured on film many of the most famous personalities of the 20th Century.
Now a stunning retrospective of his iconic images, over 100 of his most celebrated photographs, are on view at The Gallery at New World Stages in the heart of New York's Theater District.
As famous as the people he photographed, Scavullo immortalized celebrities in every field of endeavor - fashion, music, film, theater and sports. Many of these photographs plus examples of his legendary Cosmo-girl covers created in his over 30 year collaboration with the legendary Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown
as well as his many album covers are on display.
Hosting the opening were his partner in business and life for 32 years Sean Byrnes
and good friend and Southampton neighbor Liz Derringer
and attorney Peter Stern
The stunning tri-level display at the newly created New World Stages currently home to several Broadway hit shows provided the perfect backdrop for the beautiful crowd that ebbed and flowed throughout the evening. Swapping reminiscences of the dapper sailor capped photographer were Caroline Winston
, Justine Dianni
, and film producer Beverly Camhe
chatting up the excitingly diverse slate of this year's Hampton International Film Festival.
, Val Avellanet
, The Village People's Randy Jones
, Keith Hurd
, Marcy MacDonald
, Baroness Sherry Von Korber-Bernstein
's Kristine Tunzi
, writers David Noh
and Edward Hoban
, and porn star/new lead in Naked Boys Spencer Quest
were also seen in the Oh-So-Studio 54
crowd. Scavullo would have loved the eclectic assemblage that came to honor him and his work.
