Face to Face: The Photographs of Camilla McGrath
A revelatory collection of behind-the-scenes photographs of celebrities and cultural icons - from Joan Didion to The Rolling Stones to Nancy Pelosi. Featuring short essays from Fran Lebowitz, Harrison Ford, and more. Camilla Pecci Blunt, a nonprofessional photographer who grew up between Italy and New York, was well placed to forge the path she did. Her mother was passionate about the arts, took photographs, painted, and collected artists around her, and had galleries in Rome and New York. With more than six hundred photographs in this book from the 1950s to the early 1990s captures our cultural icons in casual, playful moments. After she married Earl McGrath in 1963, their homes–first in New York and then in Los Angeles–became gathering places for a wholly unexpected mix of people that Camilla documented in these surprising, in-the-moment photographs. Andrea di Robilant’s essay, along with memories from Griffin Dunne, Vincent Fremont, Harrison Ford, Fran Lebowitz, and Jann Wenner, reveal the backstory of this irresistible look at the larger-than-life cultural figures of our time as you have never seen them.
