Renowned photographer and filmmaker Norman Seeff, whose life-size black-and-white celebrity images were recently installed in the popular bar at Hotel Bel-Air, will be hosting a new quarterly lecture series in the bar throughout the year on February 19, May 21, August 13 and November 19, 2013.
At these informative and interactive events, which are offered complimentary from 3 to 4 pm and open to the public, Seeff uses his remarkable archive of film and video to illustrate how he used his photo sessions as way to explore the inner dynamics of creativity, both personally and with his subjects.
Seeff’s celebrity portraits have added a dramatic new dimension to the bar’s design since their installation last fall. The stunning images are the result of several photo sessions which Seeff conducted with the world’s most creative innovators and entertainers in the 1970s and ‘80s. “At these intimate lectures, I am honored and thrilled to be sharing what I have learned from my interaction with hundreds of renowned creators of all disciplines. We will screen film from my sessions revealing and demonstrating the dynamics of innovative creativity, in action,” said Seeff.
Long acclaimed as a master of rock and roll photography, Norman Seeff’s work has resulted from three decades of celebrity photo sessions -- sessions which became legendary events in the 1970s and ‘80s, and which continue to this day. Seeff’s images have been featured on the covers of TIME Magazine, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine and more. His photo genius was featured in Apple’s famous “Think Different” campaign and on the back cover of Walter Isaacson’s recent biography of the late Steve Jobs.
