Vanity Fair's 20th Annual Hollywood edition features a portfolio of 20 Polaroid portraits of movie stars shot by Chuck Close. The artist requested that his subjects be ready to be photographed without makeup or hair-styling and used a large-format 20x24" Polaroid camera for the close-ups. Close has been creating portraits in a variety of media for five decades. Portraits of stars from Kate Winslet and Oprah Winfrey to Morgan Freeman and Martin Scorcese appear in the March issue.
Close's exhibition Nudes 1967-2014 opens at Pace Gallery on February 28 at 534 West 25th Street.
