Parents' Night Out: 'The Cassavetes Project' Photo Exhibit

If you're looking for a cool night out with the hubs, why not drop by Canon Hollywood to check out an L.A.-friendly photo exhibit from actor/photographer Steve Reisch.

"The Cassavetes Project" will open on September 19 and run through November 20. The exhibit will feature portraits of famous faces including Gena Rowlands, Nick Cassavetes, Peter Falk and even Angelina Jolie as a child with father Jon Voight.

Check out more details below!

Photographer/Actor Steve Reisch first met John Cassavetes in 1981 in the lobby of the Center Theater in Hollywood.  Cassavetes was at the small playhouse on North Citrus Avenue to stage "Love Streams," "Knife," and "The Third Day Comes" — a trio of productions the director titled "Three Plays of Love and Hate."  Upon meeting Cassavetes, Reisch expressed his desire to document the repertory.  Reisch also landed a co-star role in one of the three plays.

During the production's six month run, Reisch photographed more than 3,000 behind-the-scenes images with his Canon AE-1 Program camera. His intimate portraits capture the cast and crew, including Gena Rowlands, Jon Voight, Peter Falk, Nick Cassavetes, and John himself. Many of the images have not been seen since June 1981, when the production closed.

In partnership with Reisch, Canon has reprinted the images on the Canon imagePrograf 6450 for a special gallery show.
