Steve Starr Night of 100 Stars in Beverly Hills Roving Celebrity Photographer
STARRLIGHT By Steve Starr HOLLYWOOD LAND 2012 Ken Brown and Steve Starr on Rodeo Drive! Flying over the gorgeous, snowdusted southern ridges of the purple blue mountain ranges towards the magic city is always a thrill. It was Oscar weekend. In Los Angeles, I was greeted by my amenable host, actor Ken Brown, (www.actorkenbrown.com) formerly of Chicago and now living in Hollywood, who had invited me to stay at his suite located directly across the street from the famed 1927 Roosevelt Hotel, home to the very first Academy Awards. There, I was a few quick steps away from Hollywood Boulevard and the Oscar ceremonies at the Kodak Theatre. On Oscar morning I photographed journalists and reporters from around the world who gathered in Hollywood to cover the biggest event of the year. These are the faces that will appear in my future exhibition, The Face of News. Celebrity Journalist Irene Michaels (www.IONTHESCENE.com) invited me to photograph and report on the exciting 22nd Annual ‘Night of 100 Stars’, produced by renowned agent Norby Walters at the iconic 1912 Beverly Hills Hotel, a lush haven for the most famous stars and personalities in the world. Accompanied by my wonderful host, Ken Brown, I met and photographed directors, producers, actors, and models, but also dozens of past Oscar winners and stars of old Hollywood – glimpses of a beautiful world that no longer exists. Here, they all assembled to walk a 250’ long Red Carpet, mingle and dine to view the most watched television event in history in the world – the Oscars.
