Seen as one of the first cinematic sex symbols, Sophia Loren's charisma and voluptuous figure attracted many admirers. Yet her life away from the cameras may surprise some—she was married to Carlo Ponti, film producer, throughout her career and until his recent death. She also struggled to become a mother and considered her two children her greatest accomplishment. Loren came from impoverished roots to become possibly the greatest Italian actress of her time. Her many films included Houseboat; Two Women, for which she won an Academy Award; The Fall of the Roman Empire; and The Millionairess. She also loved to sing, adding to her sex appeal with her seductive voice. Sophia Loren: A Life in Pictures illustrates the variety and contrasts in Loren's private and public persona, with wonderful pictures and an incisive biography.

One of the twentieth century's most colorful characters brought back to life in this biography by the author of All About All About Eve With Inventing Elsa Maxwell, Sam Staggs has crafted a landmark biography. Elsa Maxwell (1881-1963) invented herself–not once, but repeatedly. Built like a bulldog, she ascended from the San Francisco middle class to the heights of society in New York, London, Paris, Venice, and Monte Carlo. Shunning boredom and predictability, Elsa established herself as party-giver extraordinaire in Europe with come-as-you-are parties, treasure hunts (e.g., retrieve a slipper from the foot of a singer at the Casino de Paris), and murder parties that drew the ire of the British parliament. She set New York a-twitter with her soirees at the Waldorf, her costume parties, and her headline-grabbing guest lists of the rich and royal, movie stars, society high and low, and those on the make all mixed together in let-'er-rip gaiety. All the while, Elsa dashed off newspaper columns, made films in Hollywood, wrote bestselling books, and turned up on TV talk shows. She hobnobbed with friends like Noel Coward and Cole Porter. Late in life, she fell in love with Maria Callas, who spurned her and broke Elsa's heart. Her feud with the Duchess of Windsor made headlines for three years in the 1950s. Inventing Elsa Maxwell, the first biography of this extraordinary woman, tells the witty story of a life lived out loud.

"This book is a valuable record of conversations with fifteen celebrated and distinguished photographers representing the spectrum of "schools", movements, and styles currently in the medium. The interviews establish a vivid and intimate portrait of each subject, focusing on the history of the artist's career, the relationship between his vocational photography, and his personal imagery, the genesis of particular works, and specific technical processes, and are invaluable to an understanding of American photography today."--Page 4 de la couverture.

"The photographic portrait has two parallel histories that run side by side, from the birth of photography to the twenty-first century; one of portraits made in the studio, the other of those taken in the street. The advent of small, easily concealed cameos allowed photographers to capture subjects in the street unaware. In contrast, the studio offered the opportunity to present carefully composed images to the world, making use of the elaborate staging and technical devices at the photographer's disposal." "With celebrities today expected to pose for the paparazzi in the street, and the studio being used increasingly for informal and intimate shots, these traditions have been subverted. Accompanying a major exhibition at Tate Modern, Street & Studio explores the fascinating contrasts, tensions and connections between these two traditions."--BOOK JACKET.
