Abstract:

Beginning in 1966, at the age of fifteen, the author would convince his mother to drive him from his home town of Lancaster, Pennsylvania to Philadelphia and New York City, where he would wait outside theaters, parties, and restaurants in hopes of photographing famous people. With his Instamatic camera, he captured everyone from silver-screen goddesses and Broadway legends to forgotten local beauty queens, rock stars and politicians, porn stars, and the Pope. Alongside these candid images, are Boas' own insider stories and humorous, sometimes shocking observations about his interactions with the stars.
