Kossmann snaps candid Cannes pix

Red carpet photos will be displayed at Arclight

The face is no doubt familiar — Spanish auteur Pedro Almodovar. The photo may ring some bells too. Taken by Stephane Kossmann and enlarged to a huge 54-square-meter poster, it emblazoned the Cannes Town Hall during May’s film festival.

It now forms the centerpiece of a 30-picture exhibition of Kossmann photo-portraits, taken of producers and stars caught off guard on Cannes’ red carpet. Produced by Sophie Lepeu and staged at the Arclight Club’s Cinema Lounge in Los Angeles, the exhibition opens Monday at the after-screening party for “Bad Education,” the latest film by Almodovar, the subject of an AFI fest tribute.
