Yul Brynner: A Photographic Journey Hardcover – October 15, 2010
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"Yul" captures both the world the Yul Brynner moved in and gives the reader a shimmering glimpse at the artist behind his public persona.
All photographs reveal as much about the photographer as the subject. In the images here, it is clear that Yul Brynner had the gift of making the people around him feel at ease, entertained, and, most importantly, themselves.
Catch a glimpse of his daughter Victoria, only a toddler, but clearly delighted in her father's company; Ingrid Bergman, eyes alight with laughter; or Frank Sinatra, relaxed in a way the public never saw, and you will feel welcomed into Yul Brynner's private way of seeing. These photographs make his vision of the world real.
If you like Yul Brynner Photographer,High Exposure: Hollywood Lives - Found Photos from the Archives of the L.A. Time,Tsar: The Lost World of Nicholas and Alexandra, you would enjoy this book.
Victora Brynner's book is an obvious companion to this work. Her writing is even better in Yul--especially her memories of being with her father.
High Exposure's pictures of stars--sometimes very unhappily in the spotlight-- provide stark contrast to Brynner's warm, intimate relationships with those he photographed.
Tsar: The Lost World of Nicholas and Alexandra is the closest book I could find for both physical beauty of the book itself and the richness and happiness of the lost world depicted in its pages.
Buy Yul and get to know the warm, funny, perceptive worldview of a Hollywood Classic (and gifted photographer): Yul Brynner.
Oh, and you know you need to watch The Magnificent Seven again: The Magnificent Seven (Special Edition).
I enjoyed reminiscing my years gone by at the movies and will continue to do so in the years to come. Thank you Victoria for sharing these private moments with us.
