About this title


Here is the "New Hollywood Glamour" - a renaissance in the art of celebrity portraiture that pays homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood, while it redefines the leading edge of style.
These remarkable photographs were mostly produced for magazines, published only once - or not at all - and then filed away in photographers' archives. From these wonderfully rich archives, Ricky Spears, a co-founder of DETAILS magazine, put together this collection of the most captivating contemporary celebrity glamour photography.
Artists such as Mary Ellen Mark, Robert Mapplethorpe, Sylvia Plachy, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Bert Stern, and Timothy White have contributed seductive, sexy images of movie icons such as Jeff Bridges, Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Isabelle Huppert, Jodie Foster, Jessica Lange, and Winona Ryder. In all, 63 photographers share 153 color and black-and-white photographs, each an intimate collaboration between subject, artist, and camera.
In addition, SHOOTING STARS provides biographies of all the photographers and the most extensive filmographies of the stars ever published.
Together, these photographers and stars have helped to redefine the genre of glamour portraiture - and our very idea of glamour itself. SHOOTING STARS is a stunning permanent record of this fruitful collaboration.
