Jeff Bridges uses a Widelux camera to capture moments behind the scenes on his movies.

“My photography is mainly focused on my work making movies, which I’ve done my whole life. I think I have a perspective that not many people have. And I get to take advantage of all of the strange sources of light on a set.”
New York Times

“The Widelux is a fickle mistress; its viewfinder isn’t accurate, and there’s no manual focus, so it has an arbitrariness to it, a capricious quality. I like that. It’s something I aspire to in all my work — a lack of preciousness that makes things more human and honest, a willingness to receive what’s there in the moment and to let go of the result. Getting out of the way seems to be one of the main tasks for me as an artist.”
