TALKING ABOUT famous people —
today I received a wonderful, absolutely amazing coffee table book from the photographer Ellen Graham. I have known Ellen for years, and she has surprised us now with one of the best collections of the famous I’ve ever seen. (And I’ve seen them all, from Harry Benson to Richard Avedon and Annie Leibovitz.)
This book goes from the “Mink is for football” designer Valentino to the Prince of Monaco, Brooke Astor and C-Z Guest. It also includes Liza, Halston, Cher, Andy Warhol, and movie actors galore. Gloria Swanson is there lying among hundreds of her high heels. It’s quite a book.
Talking Pictures, so titled, is from Pointed Leaf Press, and will be in all the best bookstores. (You remember bookstores where you can feel and smell and hold the pages and pick it up and put it down without turning on your electricity.)
I am thrilled with Ellen Graham’s work and talent. There are 200 images, every one better than the one before. Youthful Warren Beatty is on the cover. But there’s a photo inside of Natalie Wood; it took my breath away. Don’t miss this book!

A photographer all her life, Ellen Graham has met and photographed the beautiful people of the latter half of the twentieth century. How gorgeous they were. And so many of them! Flipping through the proofs of her forthcoming book, with the somewhat bittersweet title ‘The Way They Were’, we were hard pressed to name the Warren Beattys, the Ryan O'Neills, the Newmans and Redfords and Eastwoods of today....
