Item description for Two Million Miles by Andrew MacPherson & Charlize Theron...
In an increasingly mobile society, it's common to cross the globe many times in a single month. Journeys that might once have taken weeks, now take hours. All of this travel is a suitable metaphor for Andrew MacPherson's rise to the pinnacle of celebrity photography. He has literally traveled the world to profile the best-known people of our age; Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon, and George Clooney to name a few. As he's done so, he's also embarked on an artistic journey to bring something fresh and inviting to each of his Images. In this quest, he employs a multitude of varied techniques, playing with form, context and color. A note of poignancy overshadows this work. Many of the original negatives were lost in a warehouse fire. It is a testament to the strength of MacPherson's work that even scanned from magazine pages---as some of these images are---the results still radiate vitality and power.

How long do i have to wait for Four Million Miles? May 9, 2007
I don't know how to clearly write the following sentence..... Andrew Macpherson is the photographer who has made The Best images of the people most often photographed. Does that make sense? Looking through this book, for the first time, for the second time, for the fifth time - i was struck by how often it is his photographs in which these oft-photographed, iconic figures look the best they have ever looked.
I've known about Macpherson since he began with The Face, but never really had a sense of his complete catalog of images until recently. He's simply wonderful. And, from all accounts, he seems to be a wonderful person, as well. That's too rare.
It's sad that this talented photographer lost so much of his original work in that warehouse fire. I had read about this prior to seeing the book in person, and wondered about the quality of the reproductions, as some come from scans of actual tear sheets. There is nothing to be concerned about, though. The book is beautiful, through and through.
It may be too early, but i am eagerly anticipating the next book.
I was amazed Jan 12, 2007
I was amazed at the photography in this book. Andrew Macpherson captures the inner beauty and souls of his subjects. The lighting is extraordinary and the colors give every photo outstanding depth. Andrew is truly a gifted artist!
