About this product
- DescriptionIsabelle Huppert stands out among actresses due to her audacious choices of roles, both for films (I Heart Huckabees, 8 Women, The Pia Teacher) and theatre. Her intelligence and intuition are evident in the parts she plays. Her rewn as an actress is t limited to the French cinema but embraces Europe and the rest of the world. This most mysterious of actresses likes to be photographed but she is t an easy subject. She offers herself to the eye of the camera yet remains secretive, almost absent. The great photographers of our time - Richard Avedon, Edouard Boubat, Guy Bourdin, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliot Erwitt, Lartigues, Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Sylvia Plachy, Marc Riboud, and Scavullo - took up the challenge. Huppert's energy and strength are often shrouded behind a kind of melancholy, and these photographers have captured beautifully that contradictory quality. Not only a collection of gorgeous images, this haunting book also unveils the bond between the public image and the secret soul of this unique woman.
