Jeff Bridges : Lebowski and other Big Shots
Actor, singer and film producer Jeff Bridges is never separated from his Widelux camera, whose lens covers a 140° field. Since the 1980s, he has captured behind-the-scenes images of each of his films by photographing the actors, technicians, locations, mesmerising sets and fanciful costumes. Like a diary, his “albums” of black and white photographs reveal the secrets of some of the greatest Hollywood productions, immersing the viewer in the heart of cinema, where anything is possible and everything is extravagant.
Production by Images Vevey with the support of Chaplin’s World
Original scenography by Images Vevey in association with the artist
The installation is a tribute to the 20th anniversary of the film The Big Lebowski, produced by the Coen Brothers in 1998.
The panoramic camera used by Jeff Bridges – the Widelux – is exhibited in the permanent exhibition of the Swiss Camera Museum (No 29).
