Read full description of the books:Having had a front row seat spanning nearly 100 years in the worlds of style, celebrity, politics and power, no other magazine has quite the ability to showcase the talents of such a broad array of famous photographers as well as the breadth of personalities presented here. From early photographers like Edward Steichen, Cecil Beaton and Man Ray to modern day lenssmiths such as Irving Penn, Herb Ritts, Helmut Newton, Bruce Weber and, of course, Annie Leibowitz, ‘the Portraits’ offers an unprecedented window into the figures that made history for over 100 years. Walt Disney, Einstein, Churchill, Babe Ruth, W.C. Fields and other make up the early years, while Madonna, Darryl Hannah, Bill Gates, and many more (far too numerous to mention) comprise the latter years. The only regret is the missing gap. As a victim of the great depression, the magazine was ‘folded’ into Vogue and did not reappear until 1983 when S.I. Newhouse’s Conde Nast revamped the title to fit the times. Nonetheless, ‘the Portraits’ serves as a remarkable time capsule of the last century of celebrity – as good as anyone could expect to publish.
