Anima/Persona - The photography of Brigitte Lacombe

From Claire O'Neill' s article for NPR, "Frank Rich of The New York
Times puts it well in his introduction:
"There is art, and there is show business. In a young century
overdosing on glossy and voyeuristic celebrity exploitation
masquerading as photojournalism, it's essential to keep the boundary
distinct. That is the key to appreciating the photography of Brigitte
Lacombe, whose work often takes her into the realm of show business
but whose pictures strip the commerce away from the artists until we
are face-to-face with what some of the seminal figures of our time are
trying to say to their audience."
