CIRCLE OF FIRE

Dennis Feldman: Hollywood Boulevard

1969-1972


For three years, Dennis Feldman (born 1946) repeatedly walked an eight-block stretch from Hollywood and Vine to the Chinese Theater, called the Walk of Fame, where people flocked to gaze at a sidewalk full of terrazzo stars inlaid with the names of famous (and no longer famous) entertainers. He became obsessed with photographing the characters that gathered there, drawn to the world of stardom, parading their self-made identities--macho and gay, masculine and feminine, biker and hippy--modeled after American archetypes molded by the entertainment industry and the social revolution of the 1960s. Hollywood Boulevard compiles the photographer's large-format, black-and-white portraits into a painfully human character study of social identity and performance.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Magazine

Ian Epstein

It’s a time capsule of the long-ago outlandish.

n + 1

Erin Sheehy

My favorite photos in Hollywood Boulevard are the ones that don’t fit neatly into the time, the place, or the glib narrative of Hollywood, but instead are wildly individual: pictures of waiting, wandering, loitering with friends.

Dennis Feldman: Hollywood Boulevard

Dennis Feldman: Hollywood Boulevard

Featured image is reproduced from Hollywood Boulevard: 1969-1972, the refreshing new photography collection by Dennis Feldman, who captured the seedy side of this most famous of streets before going on to a noted career as a director and screenwriter. Of the photo project, he writes, "I’m driven to photograph places where, as they say, 'the veil between the seen and the unseen is thinnest.' …On Hollywood Boulevard you could see the cracks in the performance: the face through the mask—the truth through the pretense—the doubt through the confidence—the little boy or girl in the adult they became. That’s what I mean by the veil was thinnest. Hollywood is a notorious heartbreaker where only a few dreams come true. And so, over time, most people on the Avenue found themselves all dressed up with nowhere to go... except home if there still was one." continue to blog
