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.
