Book of the Day: Max: Photographs By Max Vadukul
Fresh, energetic, violent, yet still graceful: the photographs of Max Vadukul pack a punch that sends you reeling. A favorite photographer of Tina Brown’s, Vadukul is Talk magazine’s photographer-at-large and has lent his signature mix of humor and raw honesty to magazines from Vanity Fair to The New Yorker. Fittingly, his first book is an oversized collection of characters that define our cultural landscape. The striking images here get up close and personal with Clint Eastwood, Donald Trump, Winona Ryder, Rudolph Giuliani, Mother Teresa, Missy Elliott, John Waters, Fiona Apple, Tom Hanks, Mick Jagger, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Salman Rushdie, and many more. Outrageous text, written with the New York Observer’s “Transom” columnist Frank DiGiacomo, weaves throughout the photographs. With tabloid newspapers in mind, these extended captions boast headlines, gossip, and witty wordplay, perfectly complementing Vadukul’s bold images.
