Integral to the image of Southern California glamour and success, the luxurious backyard pool symbolizes fun in the sun for those who have made it—vivid, aqueous proof of the American Dream hard at play. As much of an icon of prosperity as it is a decadent trophy for healthful living and social aspirations, the pool is one of America’s supreme status symbols dating back to the time of The Great Gatsby. More than an athletic accoutrement, the swimming pool is superbly designed for socializing, frolicking, sunbathing, skinny dipping...in short, for having loud, splashy fun.
In Hollywood Splash, famed photographer Véronique Vial, author of the blockbuster bestseller Women Before 10 A.M., takes a dip into the private pools of today’s top actors and models, and captures exclusive wet poses and staged aquatic antics from hundreds of famous and soon-to-be-famous stars, celebrities, and notable faces, featuring amusing and hilarious collaborative wet hijinks with Claudia Schiffer, Lisa Marie, Rosanna Arquette, Rachael Leigh Cook, Troy Garity, Julie Delpy, Shiva Rose, Dave Navarro and Carmen Electra, Norman Reedus, Erika Christensen, Tara Reid, Rachel Hunter, Brett Ratner, Daryl Hannah, Andy Garcia, Molly Sims, Heidi Klum, Djimon Hounsou, Michael York, Benjamin Bratt, Corey Feldman, Robin Tunney, Johnny Depp, Brooke Shields, Anastasia, Tatjana Patitz, Angie Everhart, Blair Underwood, Jeff Goldblum, Tia Carrere, Michael Chiklis, Diane Warren, Will Estes, Claire Forlani, Craig Kilborn, Neil Patrick Harris, Traci Bingham, Griffin Dunne, Gabriela Reece, Jennifer Grey, Seth Green, James Franco, Esai Morales, Lucy Lawless, Patrick Dempsey, Jenny Garth, William H. Macy, Shannon Tweed and Gene Simmons, Antonio Sabato, Jr., Daphne Zuniga, and a sea of others, all playfully cavorting and hamming it up in, with, on, around, beside, under, and over water and other aqueous substitutes for Vial’s camera.

Véronique Vial was born in France and moved to Los Angeles in 1989. An exclusive backstage photographer for the famed Cirque du Soleil and recipient of a World Press Award, Vial has exhibited her work at the prestigious Visa Pour l'Image in Perpignan and at the renowned Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles. Vial is the author of numerous photo books including Women Before 10 A.M., Men Before 10 A.M. Too, and "O": Cirque du Soleil at Bellagio, all from powerHouse Books. Vial lives in Los Angeles, California.From Publishers Weekly:
In the ultimate gimmicky photography book, French-born photographer Vial (Women Before 10 A.M.) captures two quintessentially Hollywood images: movie stars and swimming pools. Most of the full-color photos feature those two images, although some deviate, showing stars urinating or canoeing on a lake, or non-stars (like the U.S. Synchronized Swimming Team) flaunting their stuff. Vial's images tend toward the sexy (there's Rosanna Arquette pouring a pitcher of water over her black lingerie-clad body, and loads of other shots feature wet t-shirts); some show stars skinny-dipping. Many reveal celebrities mid-air, about to take the plunge. The settings-often subjects' backyards-contribute to the book's insider feel, and there's something pleasantly unpolished about the image of Sasha Lazard (Dark Harbor) hiding her head between her arms as she dives in to a dark pool in a turquoise dress, or of Tom Cruise grinning euphorically just before he lands in a glimmering rectangle of water. No captions accompany the photos; readers must refer to a listing at the book's end to figure out who's who. 232 color photos.
