Greene, Douglas Kirkland, Lawrence Fried, Terry O'Neill and Eva Sereny - who were fortunate enough to capture the star at different moments of her life.

What the press have said about this book...
"……it’s clear that each photographer agrees: Photographing Audrey Hepburn was a special experience. 'She was one of the most kind and generous people I’ve ever worked with,' O’Neill says. 'She lit up a room and never took a bad picture. My job was easy — I just had to be there and press the button. I can’t say enough good things about Audrey. I was lucky to be there.'” -- Hollywood Reporter
“Backstage, on a beach, hugging a donkey–is there any place where celebrated British actress Audrey Hepburn doesn't shine? In the forthcoming photo book Always Audrey, devoted fans will have a glimpse of never-before-seen photographs of the Breakfast at Tiffany's star, captured by six different photographers.” - Chelsey Sanchez, Town & Country
