About this title

Synopsis:

Palm Beach People is a dazzling portrait and insider’s view of a fabled and exclusive resort community and its high-profile denizens, as seen through the lens of master photographer Harry Benson and the words of society columnist Hilary Geary Ross. 

Ross and Benson’s critically acclaimed first project, the coffee-table book, New York, New York, provided readers with an inside look at the homes and portraits of New York City’s movers and shakers. In this beautiful, deluxe-size follow-up, Palm Beach People, Benson and Ross give the reader a grand tour of America’s most glamorous watering hole. You’ll meet everyone from captains of industry, politicians, movie stars, artists, and bestselling authors to celebrated athletes and society doyenne, all photographed in their exquisite private oases, often architectural masterpieces, or in other of their favorite Palm Beach settings. 

Palm Beach People captures the essence of America’s most exclusive enclave, from the early 70s to today, in hundreds of color and black-and-white photographs complimented by revealing captions. Subjects include the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough; former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and his wife Mila; Marie-Josée Kravis; members of the Fanjul family; Judy and Alfred Taubman; Georgina Bloomberg; Pauline Pitt; Mrs. Henry Ford; Leonard Lauder; Tommy Lee Jones; David Koch; Arriana and Dixon Boardman; Tatiana Smith; Mrs. Winston Churchill; Brooke Shields; Anne Slater; and many, many more.
