Before directing commercials and shooting the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Will Smith and other celebrities for Playboy, Newsweek, Esquire
and Vanity Fair
, Israeli-born, L.A.-based Moshe Brakha got his start photographing prefame rock stars (many in Hollywood) from Madonna, Ringo Starr and Neil Young to punk legends, including the Ramones, Screamers, Weirdos and Black Flag. Occupation Dreamer: The Photography of Moshe Brakha
gives you the chance to see vintage color and black-and-white shots from the '70s and '80s of a young Anthony Kiedis lying on the Hollywood Walk of Fame; Diana Ross covered in pearls; Devo wearing plastic breasts; and the Cars resting in, what else, a car.
