Books: Celeb Portraitist Vincent Peters's "Light Between Us"
Glamour is not dead, and neither is classicism: The proof is The Light Between Us, the new limited-edition monograph from fashion and celebrity photographer Vincent Peters. The book is a collection of his most memorable black-and-white portraits, featuring famous faces belonging to Charlize Theron, Emma Watson, Cameron Diaz, Christian Bale, Scarlett Johansson, John Malkovich, and other stars. Peters, who has shot for mags like GQ and Vogue, and brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Yves Saint Laurent, embraces carefully lit artifice, focusing on shape and gesture, in the manner of Hollywood portraits of old. Proceeds benefit the Family Justice Center of the Protection Against Violence department at Berlin's Charité hospital.
