The film star Yul Brynner was also an accomplished photographer whose work appeared in Life magazine and was praised by Henri Cartier-Bresson and others. In this book, Brynner's daughter presents a collection of his pictures taken between the 1950s and the 1980s. They include behind-the-scenes shots of celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor, Charlton Heston, Sophia Loren, Roddy McDowall, Richard Burton, Deborah Kerr, Ingrid Bergman, Jean Cocteau and Anatole Litvak, as well as photographs of Brynner's family. There are also pictures of exiles which he took while serving as a Special Consultant to the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees. The photographs are accompanied by reminiscences from many of the people in them.
