Moshe Brakha – L.A. Babe – The Real Women of Los Angeles 1975-1988
Publisher: Rizzoli, 2017
Hardcover, 208 pages, English
New in seal
A collection of previously unpublished photo-graphs of the crazy, sexy celebrities and other cool women of ’70s and ’80s Los Angeles, from Beverly Hills to Venice Beach to the Sunset Strip.
Photographer Moshe Brakha’s acidly crisp, other- worldly photographs evoke a certain stylistic sensibility and a knack for innovative and sensual photography that engages the viewer. L.A. Babe collects the photographer’s most compelling subjects from the late ’70s and early ’80s: the various women he encountered all over Los Angeles. The book includes photographs of the punk band the Runaways, Patricia Arquette, Lita Ford, candid photos of LaToya and Janet Jackson, and longtime Los Angeles staple Angelyne, among many others. From Beverly Hills High School cheerleaders to brash bartenders and groupies, L.A. Babe captures the essential Los Angeles at its sunniest, coolest, grittiest glam and punk peak.
