Divas by The New York Public Library For The Performing Arts

Book Description

Renowned for his ability to capture the distinctive personalities of his subjects, Kenn Duncan's greater acclaim stemmed from his gift of celebrating a specific type of performer: the woman whose talent and charisma make her a diva. His camera, like a disco ball, illuminated such celebrities as Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera, Angela Lansbury, Gelsey Kirkland, and Joan Rivers. This is a celebration of Duncan, his divas, and the times in which they lived, loved, and partied. It includes such famous images as Anita Morris' controversial shot from Nine, and rare photographs of Susan Sarandon, Carrie Fisher, Lily Tomlin, LaBelle, and Diane Keaton. These photographs are to be exhibited at the The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts in Fall 2008.
