This fascinating book details icons of three crucial decades of the 20th century, personalities who left their unique mark in the field of politics, art, music, and movie. Santi Visalli lived at the same distance from the famous people he decided to photograph as the general public did. He wanted to show what we all saw, but from his own special perspective. Every one of Visalli's photographs is a surprise, because the only study of the subject consists in what the photographer knows, reads and understands; not in a fake interview, in a studied pose or in a statement. Visalli looks through the lens of the culture of his time, and his pictures capture the period with precision. This is an atlas of contemporary American history, it's the Sistine Chapel of what the USA was in those years.
