Artists' Statement:
“In a world where authenticity is an autograph and reality a genre of TV, our images provide society a mirror to reflect upon its ideals and devotions. We seek to reveal those qualities which make our subjects extraordinary: their personality, aura, beauty and power. As multi-media artists who embrace collaboration with creative partners’ opposing viewpoints, our work embodies a multiplicity of perspectives. We come together through love, planning, discussion, and respect. We collaborate closely with our subjects, to understand them and be inspired by their reality, their fantasies and artistry. We empower them to move freely through our multiple exposures, which we combine for their truest expression, movement and being.”

ICONS is one-of-a-kind! The images are absolutely stunning and the stories behind the photos are intriguing. I particularly enjoyed the images of David Bowie. The artwork was for his "Heathen" album, and the photos evoke an eerie spiritualism. I also thought the story behind the shoot for Beyonce's debut album cover was sweet. (These photogs definitely think on their toes.) If you like celebrties, musical artists, or fashion photography, this book is for you.

LOVE IT!

If you guys are into their kind of work it is definitely worth having! Book does not show breakdown of how images where created, but instead tell the story behind them and how Marcus and Indrani work.

This is a gorgeous photography book. I had so much fun learning about what my favorite celebs were like behind the scenes of their photo shoots. I knew Beyonce was classy!
It's easy to lose half a day flipping through Icons. The photos are so crisp and stunning that you'll stare at each one for ages. I was completely mesmerized!

Fashionista must-have!

Some great examples of the work of Markus & Indrani but I'd have preferred to see more on how they achieved their shots.

Still it's great to see what they can achieve, it's inspirational

This book is a culmination of work from two of the best fashion photographers in the last 20 years. The duo of Markus and Indrani showcase their mastery of photography and fashion in this 224pg. coffee table delight. Not all the individuals featured would be considered ICONS in their own right, but Markus and Indrani's artistic abilities always brings out the best in the subjects that they shoot. A cool mix of sex, fashion and artistry make ICONS a quality book worth picking up.
