It’s time to again feature the work of a photographer who had left an indelible mark on the world of photography. Cornel Lucas (1920-2012) was a moving force in portrait photography during the heyday of old-school showbiz glamor. He had the privilege of shooting some of the brightest stars in show business in the early days and up to now, his work is still being received with much acclaim.
