Full Description

The seventies in America were a time of social and cultural ferment, and Ira Resnick was there with his camera to capture it all. Now he is opening his archives to reveal hundreds of rare celebrity photos—many never seen since their original publication in magazines like Rolling Stone, People, and Us. Musicians like the Rolling Stones, Stevie Nicks, and James Taylor. Actors and directors like Sissy Spacek, Warren Beatty, and Martin Scorsese. Comedians like Steve Martin, Gilda Radner, and Bill Murray. Athletes like Muhammad Ali, Billie Jean King, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Politicians like Jimmy Carter, Jerry Brown, and Bella Abzug. Resnick’s dynamic shots are accompanied by personal anecdotes about his legendary subjects.
