Canadian portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh knew that the secret of lasting portraits was to photograph only the most famous people and celebrities on the planet. Those people would continue to interest people long after the subject and photographer had passed on to the next world.

The reader-viewer of this beautiful coffee table book only has to look at the formal studio portrait of "Woody Allen in 1964" or the candid photo of actor "Marlon Brando being made up for his role in the Godfather in 1974" to know that Shapiro is a gifted photographer.

Straight photojournalism pictures in the book include "Robert F. Kennedy Campaigning in 1963." In that photo the adulation of the crowd is crystal clear. A multiple image called "The Killing of Martin Luther King Jr. Triptch, Memphis, Tennessee, 1968" is another wonderful image by the same talented photographer.

The real strength of this collection of Fine Arts Photographs is the portraits. Two more memorable pictures are a candid "Dustin Hoffman and Bob Fosse, Miami, 1971" and "Rene Magritte Sleeping, New York, 1965."

The only minor flaw I experienced in the book was that the title for each photo at the bottom of each page was printed in a very light grey ink. Those subject lines were printed so lightly that it was difficult to see and then read them. Fortunately the main text is printed in black type on white paper. It would also have been nice to have included a portrait of the photographer somewhere in the book.

The book is filled with outstanding, character capturing images of movie Actors--the photographer was the official set still photographer on more than 200 major motion pictures.

Steve Schapiro is a well-known and highly regarded photographer on the Hollywood scene. This fine monograph of his work with the very famous celebrities (entertainment, sports, political, etc) along with his documentation of important social movements from that foment of the 1960s and 1970s when the world actually changed in a way we are only now beginning to fully recognize is the work of not only Schapiro but also by Matthias Harder and Lonnie Ali who are in many ways responsible for the fine book that resulted form their collaboration.

Schapiro's humor abounds here; his images of Jodie Foster in what appears to be either a first communion garb or wedding dress, Drew Barrymore imitating Charlie Chaplin, a great shot of Jack Nicholson with Roman Polanski, Dustin Hoffman with Bob Fosse in an impossible sequence, directors Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen being Woody Allen, and entertainers Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Ike and Tina Turner - along with moody images of photojournalism with Martin Luther King, the Kennedy family, incidents on the streets. It is nice to see both photographs that are now famous as well as new images that have never been seen.

This is an entertaining coffee table book that has both entertainment and historical value. The format is large without being cumbersome and the reproductions of the images is first class. Grady Harp, February 13

You'll find a perfect mixture of snapshots of humanity and celebrity in this book. I can't imagine that there's anyone who wouldn't enjoy these photos, over and over. I know I'll never grow tired of seeing these photos.
