Full Description
Frank. Sammie. Twiggy. Sophia. Elizabeth. Elvis. Priscilla. Jim. Marlene. John. Yoko. Ginger. Janis. Mick. Jack. Fred. Salvador. Cher. Audrey. Dolly. Elton. Marlon... Very few celebrities are so iconic that a single name is all that's needed in order to immediately recognise them. One photographer has captured each and every one of these icons - and more besides - on film. He goes by the name of Oscar Abolafia. You can call him Oscar.
About the Author
Oscar Abolafia (born in 1935) is an American photographer known for his outstanding photojournalism of the celebrities that made the 1960s and 70s truly extraordinary. At a young age, William Vandivert, one of the founders of Magnum Photos, took him on as an assistant and showed him the ropes about technical and lighting skills. Abolafia's work made the pages of worldfamous magazines such as People Magazine, Vanity Fair and Harper's Bazaar. Over a span of 50 years of work in the field of photography, he was able to build personal and intimate relationships with the most enduring stars of our age, such as the Kennedys, Liz Taylor, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, to name but a few. Icons by Oscar is the MENDO initiative that has opened up, for the first time ever, Oscar Abolafia's treasure trove of more than 300,000 intimate and iconic photographs. A carefully curated conversation with the iconic figures from our past starts now.
