Last year, longtime Hollywood photographer Bob Willoughby quietly posted some of his unpublished photos of Audrey Hepburn on his flickr page

“This year (2008) I am 80,” Willoughby explained on his page. “In the process of going over my prints recently, I realized that I have a lot of photographs that the galleries have never shown…and that I feel should be seen.”

He put up 46 remarkable photos of the iconic actress in a flickr set that has now received more than 9,000 views (but deserves far more!)

    Oh my! That photo with the long hair and the fawn…breathtaking. My mum has this amazing photo of my dad feeding a fawn in the woods…and the best part is, it was the first and last hunting trip he was ever coerced into taking in his lifetime. Instead of shooting a deer, he ended up coaxing a wild fawn to eat out of his hand. That was my dad.

  26. Clarity says:

    This is timely. I just saw an exhibition at the Pride in London this weekend that showed previously unseen photos of Audrey too. The quote from the photographer was "You just couldn't stop photographing Audrey".

  27. Kelly says:

    I have to agree, her eyebrows are stunning. The top one with her talking on the phone is one of my favorite photographs of her.

    She is so dear, I love her immensely.
