About this title
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.
