Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Gretchen Garner
Spears is a lifelong movie fan who since childhood has saved glamour shots of his favorite stars. Here he offers a grown-up version of his old scrapbooks: 139 mostly contemporary stars as seen by 63 mostly contemporary photographers. The well-printed, full-page pictures range in style from ultraglamour to gritty verism as the stars are caught in the studio, at home, or in the street. A few classic star portraits appear because of their distinction--e.g., Clark Gable shot by Clarence Sinclair Bull, Greta Garbo by Edward Steichen, Errol Flynn by George Hurrell, Katharine Hepburn by Ernest Bachrach. The old photos provide a standard by which to assess the new ones. If the latter don't always measure up, that is partly because work by the greatest contemporary celebrity photographers--Annie Leibovitz, Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber, Matthew Rolston, Richard Avedon, and Irving Penn--does not appear. Is Spears' personal taste or the photographers' unwillingness to contribute to blame? Spears never says. So this is a less-than-definitive display of movie glamour, although still a collection of interesting, sometimes wonderful images with which many fans and photography buffs will be pleased enough.
