Hollywood at Home

 

Growing up a stone;s throw from Hollywood and Vine I have always been intrigues by the real and manufactured Hollywood.  The staged Hollywood at Home photographs from the 40's and 50's of celebrities at play or at home with their families are particular favorites of mine.

 

In a reality-tv society where celebrity and stardom is now possible without talent or reason, the idea that anyone can become a star has indeed, become a reality.  My series, Hollywood at Home, looks at the idea of elevating family and friends into a false stardom, through lighting and position, where, they, perhaps are just on the verge of being discovered, happy to participate in the artificial glorification of who they really are.
