Celebrities rule the modern world, and close behind them are the paparazzi, fuelling the medias endless fascination with the rich and famous, while they themselves keep a low profile, fading chameleon-like into the background. Bruno Mouron and Pascal Rostain are two respected photo-reporters, based in Paris but ready to go anywhere in the world for a scoop. They began working together in the late 1970s as contributors to the magazine "Paris Match", and by 1986 they had set up a formal partnership, founding the agency Sphinx. Over the decades, they have honed the instincts required to catch the moment when a glance, a pose and a setting are most perfectly matched, capturing movie stars and models, rock stars and royalty. This book presents a selection of their best work from the last 25 years. Packed with striking black-and-white images that hark back to the golden age of photo-journalism, famous challenges us to recognize, appreciate and celebrate a fresh frame of reference through which great photography can be judged.
