Description

Sponsored by Richard Nagler and Sheila Sosnow.

Few have heard of Jack Pashkovsky. This unassuming Russian Jewish émigré parlayed his love for movies into becoming the self-appointed, unpaid chronicler of Hollywood royalty during the 1930s and ’40s with his relaxed, un-glam portraits. Before there were paparazzi, let alone Instagram and selfie sticks, there was Pashkovsky. —Mark Valentine
