Description

A Star is Born traces how stars on both sides of the camera shape the image of musicians and rock bands. Glamour portraits, journalistic documents of live performances and PR materials from record labels form the core of this publication. The book includes photographs by Ron Galella, Annie Leibovitz, Mark Seliger, Richard Avedon, Daniel Kramer, Mick Rock and Jerry Schatzberg, all of them stars behind the camera. They have all made a significant contribution to turning rock stars into legends and creating their mythology. Their subjects have included Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Frank Zappa, David Bowie, and bands from the Rolling Stones to the Beatles, the White Stripes to Coldplay. The book also includes photographs that highlight the cult-like admiration surrounding musical instruments and sound technology.
