The intriguing images assembled here are all mysterious – by turn poignant, humorous, erotic or disturbing. Their subject is the human condition and they explore every aspect of human experience – both public and private.
Over 220 beautifully reproduced photographs showcase the work of photographers whose identities have been lost in time. The images are never less than mesmerising, and include among them previously unseen portraits of stars such as Cary Grant, Richard Burton and Marlene Dietrich.
Complete with an introduction by bestselling author Alexander McCall Smith, this follow-up to Robert Flynn Johnson’s widely acclaimed Anonymous will capture the imagination of anyone.
