Description - Fame US by Brian Howell
Why do we care so desperately about famous people? In this stunning book, photographs of celebrity impersonators are juxtaposed with narratives and quotations dealing with our cultural obsession with fame, in an era in which tabloids and gossip blogs reign supreme, and personalities like Paris, Lindsay, and Jessica are superstars because of-not in spite of-their personal lives.
