Mario Casilli

Greed was good, glamour was ubiquitous and the Bee Gees were being photographed in sleeveless leather. Commonly known as the decade that style forgot, we beg to differ, and love this salute to the eighties as the era of decadence, excess and overuse of soft focus photography. Mario Casilli is a book that collates the best images of the namesake, timely photographer, who captured the beautiful people of the era and helped define the height of 1980s pop culture. Casilli created global megastars, with his portraits of everyone from Joan Collins (who wrote the forward for this book), Oprah, Bruce Willis, and even shot Sally Field for Playboy…yes, you read that right! Published through Reel Art Press, Mario Casilli is out now.
