Book: Timothy White «Hollywood Pinups»

Hollywood Pinups

Производитель: "HarperCollins Publishers"

In the 1980s, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the original Varga Girl`s first appearance in Esquire, the magazine commissioned Timothy White to create a contemporary version of the perennially popular pinup. Simultaneously paying homage to Vargas yet completely reinventing the form, White created a series of pin-up portraits of the hottest actresses and models at the time. White`s portraits were comparable to Vargas`in their poses, attitude, and playfulness, but were over the top in their creative approach, imagination, and use of digital technology. White began by shooting most of the models completely nude (Vargas, by the way, drew his images as nudes, too, but was forced to draw on their clothes at Esquire`s insistence!), save for high-heeled shoes and embellishments such as dozens of real diamonds used as gloves and pasties! Through a digital process, White then created clothes for his models - and the ultimate effect was unbelievable. Imagine supermodel Vendela looking back over her shoulder in translucent lingerie; Cindy Crawford, nude save for a leopard bra and cuffs; Christie Brinkley in black combat boots and racy camouflage; Tyra Banks floating in a sea of bubbles, nude except for white pantyhose and heels. These gorgeous portraits, which also included Bridget Hall, Stephanie Seymour, Elle McPherson, Rachel Williams, Naomi Campbell, Elizabeth Berkley, and Angie Everhart, appeared one at a time over a period of over a year as a regular feature in the magazine. Esquire then went on to use the images in a major advertising campaign. Models and starlets participated because it was great - and very tasteful - publicity.

Timothy White (January 25, 1952 – June 27, 2002) was a noted American rock music journalist and editor.

White began his journalism career as a writer for the Associated Press, but soon gravitated towards music writing. He was an editor for the rock magazine "Crawdaddy!" in the late 1970s and a senior editor for "Rolling Stone" magazine in the early 1980s. He was editor-in-chief of "Billboard" from 1991 until his death at age 50 of a heart attack in 2002.

White wrote several music-related biographies, including books on The Beach Boys, Bob Marley and James Taylor, as well as several collections of columns and short pieces.

Sometimes eccentric in appearance (he often sported bow ties at concerts), White seemed an unlikely rock writer but was well respected for his honest, meticulously documented, and lively writing.

White was also the subject of a lyric by Eminem, in which he raps: "Let me recite 'til Timothy White, pickets outside the Interscope offices everynight." This lyric appears in the song "Bitch Please II" featuring Xzibit, Dr. Dre, Nate Dogg, and Snoop Dogg.
