Synopsis: American photographer Peggy Sirota has been shooting celebrities for the last fifteen years. Commissioned by magazines such as Vanity Fair, Italian Vogue, French Vogue, Rolling Stone and GQ, her photographs instinctively draw out her subjects' qualities, capturing them in a unique, playful, and soulful way. Her subjects are never contrived or forced into situations that are not "them." Sirota's photographs are real and magical and are never over-stylized to fit into society's obsession with image and appropriated style. Guess Who, Sirota's exciting debut book, is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the seemingly ubiquitous celebrity phenomenon. Sirota asked various celebrities, athletes and musicians to lend their images to benefit and AIDS charity. The trick is that these celebrities are in disguise-captured in a whimsical and spontaneous manner that renders them unrecognizable at first glance. The reader will be teased, challenged and surprised while looking at the photographs, trying to figure out who's who. For Guess Who approximately 180 celebrities play along with Sirota and actually let go of their celebrity identity, creating a visual feast that resounds with wit and humor.

Review: Half of Hollywood posed... The trick is trying to figure out who everyone is. Scrambled names are included as hints. -- Jane Magazine, September 2000

...a breath of fresh air...a great way to...have a laugh, and play with that moment before the fame... -- Andy Warhol’s Interview, September 2000

...a whimsical, quizzical read that also happens to be charitable. -- Esquire Magazine, September 2000

...the profits...will be going to the AIDS Project Los Angeles, maybe buying a dozen isn’t such a bad idea...-Nebminja Vestyek -- Entertainment Weekly Magazine, September 15, 2000
