International singer and actor, David Serero, presents the first book representing his photo collection of American and French Actors from 1930s to 1980s.
Nearly 140 photos on vintage original silver print featuring all of his American cinema's idols….such as Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, Gary Cooper, Tony Curtis, Mickey Rooney, James Cagney, Errol Flynn, Buster Keaton, James Mason, Burt Lancaster, Gregory Peck, Paul Newman, Sean Connery, James Stewart, Dustin Hoffman, Clint Eastwood, Ronald Reagan (when he was still an actor before becoming the 40th President of the United States), Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Deborah Kerr, Lauren Bacall, Jean Simmons, Debbie Reynolds and many others. In French cinema, you’ll find pictures of Fernandel, Luis Mariano (for which we’re celebrating the centenary), Louis Jouvet, Louis de Funes & Toto, Lino Ventura, Jean Claude Brialy, Yves Montand, Simone Signoret, Jean Poiret and Michel Serrault and many others…not to mention one of his favorite: Louis De Funes and Michel Gallabru in the Miser (l’Avare).
A special section is dedicated to two idols of his youth: Humphrey Bogart and Jean Marais in various films and theater productions.
«To admire one of these actors on a photo, is for me a work of art! They are beautiful figures that have changed forever cinematic history. This book represents nearly 10 years of collecting movie stills. Collecting is all about bringing artworks together. I consider an artwork as a real person and to adopt one of them, is to adopt a person. It's a like having a small family, I invite you to discover mine.
Wishing you a very nice discovery.» David Serero
