Take a close look at the photos by Sam Jones and you'll notice a common theme. Each of these major movie stars are posing as if they're part of a scene. Whether it's Steve Carell trying to stand inconspicuously in his patterned suit or it's Steve Martin walking nonchalantly through a mine of banana peels, these actors agreed to create a story for a single snapshot. What Sam Jones does so well is captures these actors in a raw and real way. He brings out their God given personalities and makes them shine.
