This moving short film chronicles the life of photographer Yasha (Jack) Pashkovsky, from his humble beginnings as a Jewish-Russian immigrant to his self-appointed position as anonymous photographer of the biggest stars in Hollywood’s golden age. Over time, he had compiled what may have been the greatest collection of celebrity photographs never seen until the year of his death in 2001.
