From the publisher: "Something unusual happens when a photographer known for empathetic portraiture of the marginalized focuses his incisive eye on the lifestyles of the rich and famous. In Bruce Davidson's wildly diverse and revealing Portraits we see Joan Crawford hell-bent on force-feeding some poor soul, Diana Ross and The Supremes having a snowball fight, and an intense Samuel Beckett during a rehearsal of Waiting for Godot. Seen through Davidson's lens, Newt Gingrich is as goofy as Bobby Kennedy is impenetrable."
