IF YOU wanna get a glimpse of what it was like in Hollywood before you were conceived then this is your book.
Hollywood, Beverly Hills and other Perversities by Los Angeles Times photographer George Rose presents LA's golden era in music and film trough black and white images of film makers, politicians, award winning actors, porn stars, punk rockers and groupies.
Although the photos were hardly perverse and contained portraits of mostly people I don't recognize, they were still great and gave out a certain feeling of "let's go to Hollywood and be crazy."
George Rose was a photographer for the Los Angeles Times from 1977-1983 and was famous for capturing scenes of the Hollywood nightlife, award shows, film premiere after-parties and concerts. His works also appeared in Rolling Stone and Newsweek, twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and has been a recipient of a World Press Photo Award for news.
Exposed 10 Years in Hollywood
Born in Jamaica, his English mother would always tell him, "Follow your heart. I will always support you. Live your dream," And that’s exactly what celebrity photographer Mark Liddell did.
In his book Exposed 10 years in Hollywood, Liddell takes us to more than 100 photo shots with today’s most recognizable faces in music, Hollywood’s young and a-list stars and of course, supermodels.
The book is almost like a magazine, great photos on every page and never before seen interviews and commentaries by Annie Lennox, Avril Lavigne, Jessica Alba, Halle Berry and a lot more.
"I've seen the best sides and the worst sides of the biggest stars around," says Liddell. "I've seen them vulnerable, and I’ve seen them proud. I've watched them shed real tears, and I’ve sat through their temper tantrums. I’ve had to become a therapist and a best friend for a day. Celebrities were trusting me, and I learned very quickly that this trust is the most important component to a successful shoot."
