Art Streiber goes behind the scenes at Cannes for People mag

The new issue of People magazine hits newsstands today, and it features a big 6-page portfolio by Art Streiber: “Cannes Behind the Scenes: The sun! The sea! and all those stars! We take a deep dive into the world’s glitziest film festival.”

“We went to Cannes to capture a look away from the red carpet at the Palais and to show a little bit of the Cannes scenery as well,” explains Art, who was commissioned by Brenna Britton, deputy photo editor at People. “We referenced a lot of beautiful vintage imagery from the early days of the festival, which turned 64 years old this year!”

Among the stars Art photographed during his whirlwind assignment: Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Salma Hayek, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Black, and Diane Kruger.

“My crew and I were there for seven days,” he says, “rallying from beachfront hotel to beachfront hotel, often having less than an hour to set up, light, and choreograph the photos. And when our subjects arrived, we had less than 15 minutes with them in front of the camera. Our shoots were at the Carlton and Martinez hotels in Cannes and at the Hotel du Cap in Antibes.”

Here’s a look:

    I love the portraits. They’re more fun than the usual staged cele-portraits.
