Description - Fame Us by Brian Howell

A fun yet incisive look at celebrity in the modern age of gossip blogs, supermarket tabloids and brazen paparazzi. The world's obsession with celebrity has never been so heated and its craving for instantaneous, extraneous celebrity news in the information age has never been so shallow. Made up of full-colour photographs of celebrity impersonators, and joxtaposed with present and historical quotations from celebrities, Fame Us cleverly exposes and reveals the true nature of this craving for celebrity.
