In collaboration with Frank Sinatra Enterprises Hilton | Asmus Contemporary (716 N. Wells Street) will host Sinatra: My Kind of Town, a curated exhibition of photographs from The Sinatra Collection.
As one of the most photographed celebrities of the 20th century, Frank Sinatra was often followed by a cadre of photographers throughout his six-decade career. This historic collection includes rare and vintage personal photos of Frank Sinatra from the Sinatra Family Archive, the Capitol Records and Warner Bros. Records archives and notable photographers such as Terry O’Neill, Milton Greene, David Sutton and others. The collection also includes self-portraits taken by Frank himself in his formative years and photographs taken of him throughout his career. (Sinatra developed a fascination for photography early and listed photography as a lifelong hobby.)
Amanda Erlinger is an author, an artist, a photographer, and co-editor of the limited-edition book, Sinatra, published in 2015 for the 100-year anniversary of Frank Sinatra's birth. She is the younger daughter of Nancy Sinatra. Since 2002, Erlinger has acted as the manager/archivist of her grandfather's personal photographic collection.
The featured fine art prints are available for purchase and each image comes with a certificate of authenticity and is fully endorsed and licensed by the Frank Sinatra Estate. Exhibition featured images can be found here.
