The Kohner Talent Agency

For the photography project, I visited the second oldest talent agency in Hollywood–the Kohner Talent Agency. It was founded in the late 1930’s by Paul Kohner, who also founded the European Film Fund around the same time, which was an organization that helped Jewish-German¬†emigrants come to America. These two photographs show the sleek, modern design of the building, which is in stark contrast to the original talent agency. Almost 80 years later, the the talent agency now resides in Beverly Hills, amongst the gaudy and glamorous. I was interested to see how the agency shares an office space, rather than being its own stand alone building.
