Abide By Jeff Bridges’ Gorgeous On-Set Photographs

Lewbowski Bridges Photo

When Jeff Bridges was making Starman in 1984, Karen Allen saw some of his photographs and suggested he combine them with unti photographer Sidney Baldwin’s work to create an album. He did, and continued to make those collections for different film sets, giving them away as gifts to the casts and crews along the way.

Now, The International Center of Photography is celebrating Bridges’ talents behind the camera at their Infinity Awards.

The New York Times spoke with Bridges for a fantastic article on his photography (and his “fickle mistress” of a camera), and one thing is clear: the guy has gotten really good at self-portraits. There’s a natural drama imbued in what he’s capturing because he has access to the deepest recesses of film sets, but even without the famous faces and iconography, he’s captured some stunningly high-contrast visuals. Here’s a sampling (from Iron ManTrue Grit and Tron), but you can find far more on his personal website.
