About this title

Synopsis:

George Clooney is not one for long-term relationships. But what's remained beyond the grasp of any woman to date was no problem for the pot-bellied pig Max: before it died in 2006, Max had spent 18 years at the side of the "Sexiest Man Alive." Even half a century ago, the photographer Edward Quinn recognized that the relationship between stars and their pets is a special one. On the Cote d'Azur--the Mecca of the 1950s and 1960s jet set--he managed to create some of his most personal celebrity portraits in the presence of their pets. Often shy and always on guard against fair-weather friends, our glimpses of stars in Celebrity Pets alongside their animal companions are unusually approachable and natural: Picasso romping around with his dogs, Kabul and Lump, or the writer Somerset Maugham on all fours, face to face with his Pekingese, Chin. And we see the mongrel Guapa in a situation that every man of the world would have dreamed of: in bed with Brigitte Bardot.

About the Author:

Born in Dublin in 1920, Edward Quinn played Hawaiian guitar in Belfast, then went into the Royal Air Force. He eventually made his way to the CAte d'Azur, where he photographed world leaders, glamour girls and playboys, as well as figures from the worlds of art, music and literature. His most memorable work included images of an unknown Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly's first meeting with Prince Rainier, and a precocious Brigitte Bardot. His exacting eye showcased Picasso, T.S. Eliot, and Gary Cooper. With a polished technique and great patience and charm, Quinn caught some of the post-war Riviera's most memorable moments.
