Item description for Idols+Believers by Jocelyn Bain Hogg...

"Bain Hogg's stunning photographs serve as windows into the world of celebrity and pop culture. These behind-the-scenes portraits ooze glamour but also the raw and lonely flip side of fame."-Harper's Bazaar

Amid reports that up to a third of people in the United Sates suffer from celebrity worship syndrome, a stunning new photography book explores our unnatural obsession with fame.

The culmination of years of photographing the inner machinations of public and private events such as the Cannes Film Festival and the Oscars, Idols+Believers juxtaposes vibrant color images with sensitive black-and-white shots to present a fully rounded exploration of the nature of fame and fandom in the twenty-first century.

The color images reflect our apparently insatiable appetite for all things celebrity: from Kylie's knickers and plastic Bart Simpson dolls, to tourist rides over Hollywood by helicopter. Starkly contrasted black-and-white images take the reader on an intimate behind-the-scenes tour of the fame machine-from the paparazzi pack chasing the latest starlet, to fans and press swarming together around a delighted Arnold Schwarzenegger, to the icy stare of Angelina Jolie as she heads for her latest premiere. No one is left out when it comes to dissecting the celebrity industry: Producers, pop idols, supermodels, fashion designers, publicists, look-alikes, paparazzi, and even porn stars all play their part.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!
