Oversized. Publisher's description: Francois Nars, legendary photographer and one of the most influential makeup artists in fashion today, presents his new insider's collection of over 150 intimate portraits, featuring an intriguing roster of famous cultural figures. The creative visionary launched his eponymous line with twelve cult-favorite lipsticks in 1994, inspiring a groundbreaking no-rules makeup movement. After shooting the first campaign himself, Nars has directed every creative aspect of his brand and authored four portrait books showcasing his visually dynamic compositions. Persona explores Nars's fascination with portrait photography by navigating an original portfolio of the luminaries who have inspired him, including celebrities, artists, designers, musicians, and actors such as Tilda Swinton, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Kyle MacLachlan, Sharon Stone, Bella Hadid, Isabelle Adjani, Sigourney Weaver, Cindy Sherman, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Charlotte Rampling, Marina Abramovic, Liv Tyler, Christian Lacroix, Tadao Ando, and Marianne Faithfull. The timeless images are shot in color against a black background with dramatic lighting, accentuating each subject in a bold and revealing fashion to capture his or her authenticity. This volume is a true collector's item for style, culture, and photography enthusiasts alike.
