WHAT'S ON MY SHELF: Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Other Perversities

If you wanna get a glimpse of what it was like in Hollywood before you were conceived then this is your book.

Hollywood, Beverly Hills and other Perversities by Los Angeles Times photographer George Rose presents LA's golden era in music and film trough black and white images of film makers, politicians, award winning actors, porn stars, punk rockers and groupies.

Although the photos were hardly perverse and contained portraits of mostly people I don't recognize , they were still great and gave out a certain feeling of "let's go to Hollywood and be crazy."

George Rose was a photographer for the Los Angeles Times from 1977-1983 and was famous for capturing scenes of the Hollywood nightlife, award shows, film premiere after-parties and concerts.  His works also appeared in Rolling Stone and Newsweek, twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and has been a recipient of a World Press Photo Award for news.
