Robert Capa was one of the founders of Magnum Photos. Together with David Seymour, George Rodger and Herni Cartier-Bresson, they established the cooperative in 1947. An upcoming exhibit, the Magnum Sul Set, is a collection of photos that several photographers shot over the years. The common concept of this exhibit is all the photos were taken on set. There are rare and intimate portraits of actors and actresses caught on film, including photos of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean. The photos not only capture movie stars in action, they also show special behind-the-scene moments that we won’t see when watching the movies they starred in.

Here’s a look at some photos from the exhibition:
