A compendium of portraits and images by photographer Peter Beard, born out of an exhibition of the same name at David Fahey's gallery. Many of the portraits bear Beard's hallmark use of collage and handwritten text. Subjects include Castro, Truman Capote, Karen Blixen, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon, Uma Thurman, Dali, Bianca and Mick Jagger, alongside images of the people and animals Beard encountered in Africa.
