One part of the Hamptons International Film Festival program this year is Close-Up, a collection of 1960s photographs by New York-based Susan Wood. Under contract to Paramount Pictures, United Artists, and 20th Century Fox, Wood captured some of that era's most unforgettable personalities like Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Monica Vitti, Marcello Mastroianni, Billie Whitelaw, John Wayne, Billy Wilder, and Joseph Losey. These pictures premiere as a group at Mulford Farm Museum on October 4.
A pioneering 1970s feminist, Susan Wood's photography has appeared in Look, Vogue, People, and The New York Times; she is known for portraits of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Susan Sontag, Diane Von Furstenberg, and John Updike. She says, "I am thrilled that these photographs, lovingly curated by Deirdre Brennan, will be seen together for the first time in the United States and I'm honored to be one of the first artists to exhibit in the Mulford Farm Museum."
