Bert Stern may not be a household name but back in the 50s and 60s he was superstar. Known for his celebrity portraits (especially his three-day photo shoot with Marilyn Monroe six weeks prior to her death) and his original contemporary advertising campaigns, he was touted as one of the most influential pop culture creators of the 20th century. Stern normally lives behind the camera but in Bert Stern: Original Mad Man, Laumeister takes Stern out of his comfort zone and puts him in front of the camera while asking him to retrace his career. We follow him from his early days working alongside Stanley Kubrick at Look magazine, to his elevation as Vogue magazine’s principal photographer, to his ground-breaking work on Madison Avenue with up-and-coming ad agencies (many which are now the focus of the popular TV series Mad Men). At the height of his career, Stern was the king of his craft but his bad boy antics, unhealthy obsessions and self-destructive desires had harsh consequences. At times intimate and raw, Stern is incredibly frank about his triumphs and failures, giving viewers a fascinating glimpse of a creative force pulled apart by the cult of his own sense of celebrity.
