When Russian actor Anton Yelchin tragically passed away last year, his photography career was relatively unknown. He lived his life as an actor, starring in the Star Trek movie series, among other films, leaving his collection of portraits and interior design photography rather secret.

Beginning next month, an unreleased set of Yelchin's 50 photographs will become an art exhibition at De Buck Gallery in New York City.

The exhibition is titled Anton Yelchin: Provocative Beauty and its goal is to honor the intimate set of photos that represent the life of Yelchin. With many shot on a Leica camera, his grainy and vintage-style photographs give an inside look into the life of Yelchin, including his closest friends and family.

De Buck Gallery is using his photographs to not only celebrate his life and art, but also raise funds for artists. The artists' portion of money from the exhibition will go towards the Anton Yelchin Foundation, which "will be used for a variety of programs empowering artists who face career challenges due to debilitating disease or disability," according to a press release. 

Yelchin's photography collection will be on show from December 13 to January 20 of next year.
