The Academy is pleased to present Jeff Bridges: SET SHOTS, an exhibition of 14 behind-the-scenes photographs taken by Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges with his Widelux cameras. An avid photographer, Bridges has long been taking still photographs to document production of his films. Beginning in 1984 with Starman, Bridges started making small, self-published books of his pictures to give to the cast and crew as wrap presents.

This exhibition includes images contained in these books, from Bridges’s earlier films such as The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989), The Fisher King (1991), The Big Lewboski (1998) and Fearless (1993), and from his more recent productions, including Tron: Legacy (2010), R.I.P.D. (2013) and The Giver (2014). Bridges’s award-winning photography – often playful, sometimes poignant and always mesmerizing – offers unique insights into how movies are made. The installation is on display in the main corridor of the Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study.

Jeff Bridges: SET SHOTS will be on display through January 2017 and open to the public during public events held in the Pickford Center.
