Overview

8 � is the first book devoted to the work of Daniela Federici, one of the most accomplished in her generation of fashion and celebrity photographers. The title 8 � refers to Federici�s eight and a half years based in the United States, and pays homage to Fellini�s film �8 �� and reflects her love of the Italian cinema of the 1950s and 60s�an influence that is evident in her earliest work.

Federici began working as a photographer just out of college in her native Australia. While still in her early twenties, Federici moved to the United States where she encountered almost overnight success as a professional photographer: one of her first high-profile assignments was the hugely popular Guess Jeans campaign starring Anna Nicole Smith. Federici quickly became established as a photographer in the worlds of fashion, music and celebrity.

A lavish ode to nearly a decade of fashion and celebrity, 8 � features brilliant portraits of famous faces of the 1990s and into the beginning of the new millennium�models, artists, actors and musicians including Heidi Klum, Prince, Cindy Crawford, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Antonio Banderas, Sharon Stone and many others. 8 � spans the years and range of Federici�s styles, showcasing not only her celebrity portraits, but also the cinematically composed high-glamour fashion photography for which she is in constant demand.

[Daniela�s] love for what she does and her passion for photography are true to the ideal of �the never-ending possibilities of freedom�. And I still believe it is just the beginning for Daniela.
