Before They Were Famousby Nancy Ellison
First published in 2002
The book features a whole host of stars including Joaquin Phoenix's 8mm co-star Nicholas Cage who is photographed in Malibu in 1985 as well as some very elegant photographic portraits of River's Surviving co-star, Molly Ringwald. In addition, Christopher Reeve, Pierce Brosnan, Glenn Close and Jamie Lee Curtis can also be found in this collection of more than sixty artists.
There are two photographs of River presented in this book. The main image is the ill-fitting "beef-cake" shot of River exposing a nipple, the uncomfortable, some might say "pained," expression on his face still as clear as ever. The other photo is much more impressive, not only for it's artistic merit but also for the technical achievement as, using an obviously very fast photographic film and short camera shutter speed, River is photographed crisply and clearly in mid-air playing his guitar.
