Starstruck: Photographs From a Fan

Starstruck: Photographs From a Fan
by Gary Lee Boas [779.12 Boa]

Although many of these photos are blurry and have not necessarily captured many celebrities' most glamorous moments, the vast range and number of them is amazing. Boas literally spent years of his life waiting for and collecting these 'fossils in amber' and thus his own story becomes as interesting as those of the great and lesser stars he has captured in candid moments. From politicians to porn stars to the elusive Greta Garbo and the pre-nose-job Michael Jackson, this is a fascinating glimpse into the cult of personality. -- recommended by Becky W.C. - Walt Branch Library
