Description
The extensive portfolio of photographic artist Carol Westwood (1942-2011), a native New Yorker who lived in Los Angeles for many years, includes a diverse array of subjects: animals, nudes, American and European cities, and portraits. Additionally, she worked on special and still photography for numerous motion picture and television productions in Hollywood; the archive of her entertainment and celebrity images was distributed internationally by Gamma, Liaison International, Stone Images, and Getty images from 1988-2003.
Looking out towards the iconic Sunset Tower in West Hollywood from a balcony at the Sunset Hyatt Hotel (later Andaz West Hollywood). In 1929, Leland A. Bryant, an architect known for luxurious structures, designed the Art Deco Sunset Tower, located at 8358 Sunset Blvd. Since its opening in 1931, the hotel has served as the residence for many celebrities, including Frank Sinatra, Howard Hughes, Elizabeth Taylor, Zasu Pitts, Bugsy Siegel, Errol Flynn and Marilyn Monroe. Additionally, it has appeared in a number of films and books.
