Synopsis: Streisand: In The Camera Eye is a collection of the very best photographs of Barbra Streisand available, chosen for their rarity, their quality, their artistic interest and their insight into the many facets of Streisand's personality and career. The scores of pictures document her many phases and changes--from her early days on Broadway to her accomplished film work as an actress and director to her fabled concerts, along with personal imagery off the set and stage. Pictures have been sourced from the collections of some of the biggest names in portraiture and Hollywood photography including Philippe Halsman, Francesco Scavullo, Douglas Kirkland, Bob Willoughby and Cecil Beaton. Seven introductory essays by the author covering different phases of her adult life, along with substantial anecdotal and quote-filled captions, combine with the spectacular imagery to tell the whole story of one of the world's biggest, most beloved stars.
About the Author: James Spada has written three books about Streisand: Barbra: The First Decade (Citadel 1990); Streisand: The Woman and the Legend (Doubleday 1981), and Streisand: Her Life (Crown 1995) and has also produced pictorial books about Marilyn Monroe, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Midler, Jane Fonda, Jackie Onassis, John and Caroline Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and others. Between 1980 and 1983, Spada also acted as Editor and Publisher of "Barbra Quarterly," a slick fan magazine.
