Cameron Diaz will appear on one of the nine special celebrity-covers to collect from the November issue of W Magazine. If you get your hands on the Cameron-cover, don’t hesitate to scan it for the site. Thank you. :) Here’s a small part of the article (which you can read in W’s November issue) from style.com.
Employing the subversive sense of humor that has made him one of today’s most in-demand art stars, Richard Prince had his way with a stack of paparazzi photos, creating nine unique covers for this month’s issue. “It’s sort of like making art with a cocktail umbrella,” he says wryly. This is not the first time Prince, who is the subject of a retrospective now on view at the Guggenheim Museum, has used appropriated images in his art. Some of his most iconic works are called “rephotographs” of mass-media imagery, such as cowboys from cigarette ads, as well as “signed” publicity shots of movie stars. “I called Katie Holmes and she said something like, ‘I was blinded by science,’ so that’s what I inscribed on her photograph,” Prince says of one of the images in his W portfolio, before admitting, “I just sort of made that up.”
