This new Taschen-published book of Peter Beard is very modest on the outside, but oh so extravagant on the inside. Leafing through will take you longer than planned - there's just too much to discover!
Nice to know: another edition of this book is available for 10,000 euros. It has the same contents as the "regular" one, but includes a signed photograph and has a leather cover.

Back in 2006 Famous hosted the first, and highly succesful, Dutch Munny event "Munnification".
Dutch artist Dadara created unique, hand painted designs on these vinyl critters.
One of which was used for Dj Tiesto and Maxi Jazz's "Dance For Life" record sleeve.
Some of these unique figures are still for sale at Famous.
Below are some photographs of this event.

Skin colored, Size matters - 2007 at the cover of V Vorn magazine.
Rachel de Joode's "Size matters" series was published in V Vorn magazine, a high end art mag. Size Matters featured Rachel's parents, with whom she works very often. Another picture of Rachel, "Tough I know I done no wrong I feel guilt" was exhibited at the Ladies exhibition. (See further posts.)

The first photograph in row, hanging close near the window, seemed very Vermeer-esque to us.
As you can see below this picture was printed (and framed) life size.
Neema's wall of fame
Famous created a very chique portfolio, African style, to present Peter's Neema series.
The "Neema" series by Peter Klashorst that he created for Ladies.
This year, Famous has two exhibitions: Ladies and Gentlemen.
Ladies showed the work of several Famous artists like Lauren Greenfield, Larry Sultan, David LaChapelle, Rachel de Joode, Miles Aldridge and many more...
The subject of the work was, clearly, "ladies".
After the opening of daido's exhibition at the Reflex Gallery in Amsterdam, we went out for a bite with this distinguished little gentleman...
