LOS ANGELES, Ca. USA -  Jeff Vespa, co-founder of the largest entertainment photo agency in the world, WireImage and founder of Verge, will release his first monograph, The Art of Discovery, this October on Rizzoli International Publications.

 

The coffee table book presents 100 full-color photographs of the most recognizable faces in entertainment, coupled with anecdotal, often deeply personal first-hand accounts of the moments that helped to shape their careers. Participants include Tilda Swinton, Matthew McConaughey, Forest Whitaker, Laura Dern, Ethan Hawke, Shailene Woodley, Dakota Fanning, James Franco, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ashley Greene, Nicole Kidman, Jared Leto, Seth Rogan, Gabourey Sidibe and Naomi Watts.

 

"Creating this book has been an incredible journey and one of the most rewarding artistic experiences of my career," Vespa, said of the project.  "To have collaborated with such exceptional talent has been nothing short of a dream come true. I hope this book will in turn inspire others and provide more opportunities to make the arts a part of their lives."

Select images from The Art of Discovery are now available. 

The Art of Discovery was made possible with generous support from Renaissance Hotels. Books will be on sale at all major book retailers from October 14, 2014.  A portion of the proceeds from The Art of Discovery will go to support the arts and advocacy programs of the Creative Coalition.
