Candids Of Celebrities
Shape The Dazzling Face Of A Century
HE sexy sixties, swinging seventies
and dissipated eighties brought the glamorous superstars of Hollywood
and Vine to Babylon by the Hudson. Tim Boxer was on the scene
to interview and photograph the icons of an era of sex, drugs and
rock and roll. As assistant and ghostwriter to fabled New York
Post gossip columnist Earl Wilson, Tim covered the glitterati
at film premieres, Broadway opening nights and a sophisticated nightclub
landscape that is now history.
Tim was armed with a notebook
and two cameras. With his Nikon he photographed the major showbiz
names, which were published in Time, Newsweek, People, Life,
and books and magazines around the globe. He captured Mafioso
Joe Gallo cutting his wedding cake, a world exclusive shot
that appeared on the front page of The New York Times, New York
Post and Daily News—on the same day!
With a Polaroid he made instant
candids of celebrities. And all readily signed their one-of-a-kind

Warhol, Jacqueline Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Truman Capote, Leonard
