It’s not like I need another reason to love Jeff Bridges, but here is number 32:
Photographs by Jeff Bridges, on the set of Iron Man.
Not only is Jeff Bridges one of my favorite actors, but he is an accomplished photographer as well. He’s been taking photographs on set of all of his films since the 80s, utilizing a curious wide-angle camera called the Widelux that produces these widescreen, cinematic frames, a perfect pairing for capturing the film making process. At the end of every film, he collects the photographs he’s taken in a book that he then gives to the cast and crew as a memento of their time together.
His personal website, which he has had for many years (long before it was cool for celebrities to have an internet presence with Twitter and the like), is a wonderful handmade piece of self-expression; a showcase for a great actor, photographer, musician and human being.
