Always black and white, naturally lit, and stripped of make-up and costumes, French photographer Brigitte Lacombe's iconic celebrity portraits reveal the generation of film and theater stars that has emerged since the 70s. See Spielberg looking boyish; Kevin Kline embarassed and self-conscious; Leonardo di Caprio watching hawkishly; John Malkovich staring; Diane Keaton collapsed in laughter. This exquisitely produced oversize volume is a retrospective of images that gorgeously conveys Lacombe's deep love for the performing arts and the people involved in it.
