No 32 Henry Leutwyler

Switzerland (1961)

Hi There

For his project Document, Henry Leutwyler photographed over 12 years hundreds of objects belonging to now-deceased celebrities. During his long-term investigation, he unearthed Frank Sinatra’s private address book dating back to the 1970s. In its pages were the names and numbers of friends and acquaintances of the famous crooner: Hollywood stars like Cary Grant, Gene Kelly and Roger Moore, as well as the most influential politicians of the time like Henry Kissinger, Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. By highlighting these various connections, these still life images reveal a private and silent portrait of the unforgettable singer of “My Way”.
