Over the past decade, actor Scott Caan has quietly garnered a reputation as an outstanding photographer. This exceptional volume is a celebration of his most recent work. Shooting with a photojournalist’s eye, Caan captures moments that have a quiet honesty to them and a documentary feel. Caan’s images also have a unique insight into life as a celebrity, as the book’s cover imagetaken from the top of the red carpet at Cannes (where no photographer has ever been allowed) looking back at the paparazzi belowattests. The title of the book is another subtle nod to his fame. Countering claims that he is simply indulging in “a vanity project”, Caan has reclaimed the word in full force with this exquisite demonstration of his talent. “To me, Vanity was the perfect title. Photography is the one thing I can do where I don’t have to answer to anybody y … In a sense, it is my selfish way of saying; ‘these are the photographs that I like.’”

This is a beautiful collection of photographs, touching upon a wide range of topics, some glamorous, some brutally stark, but all profoundly intimate. Caan has a fantastic eye and there's not a lot that doesn't capture his attention. If you like photography, and black and white photography in particular, you should buy this book. You won't regret it.
