Young Hollywood Book
Young Hollywood is a beautiful body of work by portrait photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank, which comes on the heels of her first book with Assouline, American Beauty, published in 2012. Swanson Frank photographed over 60 of the hottest, up-and-coming women to watch in Hollywood today, drawing inspiration from old Hollywood. Among these women are actresses, directors, producers, screenwriters, stylists, and more—from Isabel Lucas and Elisabeth Moss, to Dakota Johnson and Imogen Poots, to Mickey Sumner and Amber Heard. Brimming with gorgeous portraits, alongside short texts, transcribed by Genevieve Bahrenberg, in the voices of the women themselves, a foreword by Michael Kors, an introduction by Amy Seimetz, and a Q&A between Lesley M. M. Blume and Swanson Frank, discussing the making of the book, Young Hollywood captures the essence and the allure of what it means to be a starlet in modern day Hollywood.
