‘Anima Persona,’ by Brigitte Lacombe Features Obama, Pacino, Hoffman but Don’t Label Her a Celebrity Photographer
GQ’s Editors turn us to famed photographer Brigitte Lacombe. And to think, it all started when she met Dustin Hoffman in 1975 at the Cannes Film Festival. “The actor invited her back to the States to shoot on the set of All the President’s Men—the first of hundreds of film sets and theatrical stages she’d photograph over the next thirty years. But to call Lacombe a “celebrity photographer” doesn’t grasp the scope of her art (she cracks the façade of stardom like few since Avedon), not to mention her ambition (she has trekked across the globe to document politicians and political unrest). Describing her process recently by phone, Lacombe said, “I just try to create an intimate atmosphere.”" Her second book includes portraits of Barack Obama, Brice Marden, Joan Didion, Kate Winslet, Daniel Day-Lewis, Miuccia Prada among others.

For his Fall Winter 2009 lookbook, Adam Kimmel looked to Factory alum Gerard Malanga to get behind the lens to recreate Andy Warhol‘s awkwardly ingenious screentests. With some familiar faces like Aaron Young and David Blane sitting under the spotlight, this project is definitely one of our favorites. Every motion is captured without audio in a visually intriguing setup that makes us forget about Kimmel’s F/W 2009 Collection for a brief moment.
