In her second book, acclaimed photographer Brigitte Lacombe offers revelatory portraits of Bill Clinton, Brice Marden, Meryl Streep, Martin Scorsese, and many of her most influential contemporaries. Lacombe’s honest and intelligent collection of portraits is a documentation of artists, writers, directors, actors, and political figures. These compelling photographs, in color and black and white, capture private and public moments, intimate and theatrical.
