"Definitely some of the best portraits I've seen in some time." – Slash
Warhol and Madonna never looked better. Exquisitely crafted for the iPad, this deluxe coffee-table photo collection of over 80 portraits looks stunning on the retina screen, and beautiful on previous iPads.
Award-winning photographer Curtis Knapp has taken iconic portraits of some of the most famous people of the modern era. Now, for the first time, a hand-picked selection of his stunning photographs has been compiled in a beautiful 'coffee table app' for the iPad, with a special introduction by actor Steve Buscemi.
'Icons' includes over 80 photo portraits of 50 musicians, actors, artists, filmmakers, and writers including Madonna, Andy Warhol, Tina Turner, Debbie Harry, REM, Lou Reed, Tim Burton, Roy Lichtenstein, Dennis Hopper, and Timothy Leary. The photographs have been personally selected by Curtis Knapp for this application from his archive, and include shots only previously available in limited edition art books and prints, as well as some that have never before been seen in public.
Each photo showcases Knapp's bold, distinctive style, influenced by photographic greats such as Irving Penn and Edward Steichen. Many of the images have been displayed in international exhibitions and collections, and are among the most iconic portraits of celebrities taken over the past 35 years.
The app also features audio recordings of Curtis talking about some of his most famous shoots.
