From the publisher: "In this, his second book of photographs, Antonin Kratochvil turns his camera away from the human catastrophe and destruction he portrayed in Eastern Europe to reveal another side of modernity -- the broad-reaching spectrum of the entertainment industry. Kratochvil's unique take on the famous and fashionable is not the candy-coated imagery so prevalent in today's fashion and movie magazines. His work underscores the physical and psychological intensity of the creative men and women who have sat before his camera, with images not designed to flatter but rather created to reveal something, possibly hidden, below the surface. Mostly taken on assignment for Detour, W, GQ, and Premiere, Kratochvil's celebrity portraits have never before been assembled in a book. Among those who have inspired Kratochvil to do some of his best work are Liv Tyler, David Bowie, Willem Dafoe, Jean Reno, Billy Bob Thornton, Bernardo Bertolucci, Peggy Cohen, Rob Morrow, Jessica Lang, Bob Dylan, and Patricia Arquette. Incognito is accompanied by an introduction by writer, actor, and director Billy Bob Thornton and an interview with Mark Jacobson."
