EXPOSITION “GUESS WHO?” au 10 Décembre 2000
In the memory of our beloved friends: Jeffrey Beaton, Mike Hill, and countless others, all
of my proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to AIDS Project Los Angeles.
GUESS WHO, Peggy Sirota's debut book is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the celebrity phenomenon that seems to be present everywhere. Sirota asked various celebrities, athletes and musicians to lend their image for an AIDS charity. The reader will be teased, challenged and surprised while looking at the photographs trying to figure out who's who. For Guess Who 172 personalities play along and actually let go of their celebrity identity. It is a great visual feast with a witty sense of humor.
American photographer Peggy Sirota has been shooting celebrities for the last fifteen years. Commissioned by magazines such as Vanity Fair, Italian Vogue, French Vogue, Rolling Stone and GQ, her photographs instinctively draw out her subject's personality, therefore, revealing something essential about them.
Peggy Sirota was born in 1956 in Massachusetts and presently resides in southern California. She has been a photographer since 1984 and is self-taught. She has received numerous awards for her photographs.
