    James Dean Photo Portfolio by Dennis Stock (1974). Dennis Stock was an aspiring, 27-year-old photographer who had won first prize in Life magazine's Young Photographer Contest when he first met James Dean in Los Angeles in late 1954. Stock had already achieved considerable success in Hollywood shooting photo-essays on various celebrities, and he instantly hit upon the possibilities in photographing Dean after seeing a preview of East of Eden. Stock followed Dean around his old haunts in Fairmount and New York shooting a variety of images in the waning days before Dean became a household name. Many of those iconic images are included in this limited edition set of one dozen 12" x 16" b&w photos, in Excellent condition. From the James Dean Museum archive.
