“This is a very personal selection of approximately 47 celebrity photographic portraits taken by Peter Brew-Bevan. The book begins with introduction which outlines Peter Brew-Bevan’s career as both fine artist and photographer, and places his work in context. The portraits section follows. Nearly all the subjects are well-known celebrities (Australian and international) working in sport, film, literature, music, television, theatre and fine arts. Each finished portrait is accompanied by a short description summarising the shoot brief, the evolution of the concept, events on the day and post production notes. Also for every portrait there are accompanying reproductions/facsimiles of Peter Brew-Bevan’s handwritten journals that outline the concept for the shoot, the styling, lighting set-up, his interaction with the artist, which include sketches and tearsheets from magazines etc. that inspired him in creating the portrait. The book is highly illustrated, features tip-ins on transparent film, and journal pages that appear on distinctive pages that differ in size and stock from the larger portrait pages.” (Trove)
