A decade after his sizzling debut of A Private View, fashion photographer Sante D'Orazio returns with a second volume of photo-diary-scrapbook, covering 1997 to 2008. Uncensored and provocative, the shots in Barely Private (Taschen) are mounted in collage-style entries framed with candid, handwritten observations. All-night parties and day-long photo sessions provide the light and shade of D'Orazio's jetset lifestyle - while Angelina Jolie, Brooke Shields, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Christina Aguilera, Diane Kruger, Mickey Rourke, Keith Richards, Liz Hurley are included in the array of celebrities, models, musicians, actors and artists in various states of dress and undress. 40 of the photos will be on display at a new exhibit at Milk Gallery in NYC (450 W 15th Street between 9th & 10th Avenues; daily from 10am-6pm) from December 8, 2009 through January 5, 2010.
