Imagine if you will, all the famous celebrity screw ups, junkies, addicts or anger management cases, basically the creme de la creme of Hollywood and the music industries super screw ups.
Quite frankly now I have no desire to see a Gremlins sequel, as chances are it would be a CGI mess minus the joyous puppetry and coal black humor that made the originals so brilliant. But for the parody factor alone I nailed the leveling charm of the baleful Gremlins who are hilarious regardless thanks to their nasty little personalities. A hilarious throwback to the ’80s horror-comedy classic.
The result is a strange concoction of human-monster flesh, with most of the celebrities actually looking better than usual.
A portrait – something that seems so simple to take and yet is so complex. It takes an incredible talent to make a simple, yet good, portrait. To be able to strip away the unnecessary clutter, the outer facade and get to the heart of the person. To be able to get to what really matters. Shooting portraits like that, when all you have is just the subject to work with, as a photographer, you are no longer looking at the environment or the props. You have to be able to see more than just the superficial. It is not a gift everyone has, but you definitely know it when you see it. You may not be able to explain what makes these portraits unique or special, but you know there is something there – an element that doesn’t exist in mere snapshots, whether you call it the “essence” of the person or their “soul” or whatever. There is a depth to them that stands out. Stephan Vanfleteren clearly has that talent. His black and white portraits are stripped bare. His subjects are vulnerable, almost naked, to the viewer. They say the eyes are the window to the soul and Vanfleteren has truly captured that.

Larry Marion’s book The Lost Beatles Photographs features a selection of the over 900 images of the band snapped by Bob Bonis, the Fab Four’s tour manager for all three of their US tours, 1964, 1965, and 1966. While on the road with the Fab Four, Bonis, a passionate amateur photographer with a keen eye, an innate sense of composition, and a deep love for his subjects, snapped some nine hundred photographs of the band—a remarkable collection that until now has only been known to family and close friends.
Bonis’s photos offer fans unprecedented, behind-the-scenes access to The Beatles during their breakthrough moments on the world stage, from rehearsing backstage to stellar performances in concert. Here are John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr in casual moments, in rehearsal, in concert, in dressing rooms, on vacation, at press events, on the road. Funny, surprising, provocative, beautiful, these photos recall an unforgettable period in history and offer a fresh look at these legends at the beginning of their fame.
