Great photographers and celebrities come together in this glittering collection of over 200 iconic portraits. In Face to Face Paul Ardenne sharpens our awareness of what it means to be photographed, to be taken hostage by the photographic image. He explores questions of authenticity, value, and the capacity for a portrait to create an illusion. The photographs, by the greatest names in photography, have been carefully juxtaposed to demonstrate the diversity of photographic styles.
