POTD: The Cooler King Steve McQueen

    Here is a photo I found online. It was from a photoshoot by Life Photographer John Dominis.

    In the spring of 1963, Steve McQueen opened up the doors of his Palm Springs home to Life magazine photographer John Dominis.

    Three weeks and more than 40 rolls of film later, Dominis had an unrivalled insight into the award-winning actor’s life, having spent time with his family, camped with his friends, and raced his cars around Hollywood.

    He captured some intimate and now-iconic images – only a handful of which were ever published – and here is a selection that was not featured in the magazine at the time.

    Steve and his wife, Nellie Adams, liked to shoot guns in the desert. Not sure about that prone position below.
