Bert Stern: Original Mad Man is the definitive voyage into the life and work of one of America's most influential photographers. An original Madison Avenue "mad man," Stern's images helped create modern advertising. Photographing the world's most alluring women in fashion and Hollywood for the past 50 years -- Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Kate Moss and Scarlett Johansson among them -- minted Stern as a celebrity in his own right. Here, Stern reveals his wild, untold life story to his long-time muse, filmmaker Shannah Laumeister. It seemed Stern could do no wrong, until a dramatic fall from grace. A story of self-creation; rise, fall and reinvention; exploring creativity, celebrity, and desire through the eyes of a man who got everything he wanted. Almost.

I really liked this film. It's worth seeing just to see his photographs and learn what inspired him! If you want to be inspired, whether you're an artist or not, be sure to see this film!

His photographic skills exceeded the norm and his presence will be missed by many.

Bert Stern has photographed some of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and the fashion industry from Marilyn Munroe to Elizabeth Taylor. He would go on to say that he did not take a picture but created an image. This is a very candid story about his private life and brilliant career.
