About Sinatra Collection:
Various photos from the forthcoming Sinatra book will be displayed. The exhibit is culled from a refreshing cross section of sources to authentically capture Sinatra’s spirit, and reveal his journey from youthfully exuberant talent to one of America’s most beloved icons. The Sinatra book will contain a series of fascinating self-portraits taken by Frank himself in his early formative years, just before his appearances with The Harry James Orchestra and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. It will also present a series of rare and never before seen photographs from the Sinatra Family Archive, the Capitol Records and Warner Bros. Records archives as well as images from other notable photographers. Finally, the exhibit being released by Frank Sinatra Enterprises and 1966 Americas will showcase a series of newfound photographs from the archives of the great British photographer Terry O'Neill. O'Neill worked closely with Sinatra for over 30 years, being granted access to the legend back stage and in private.
