Barbra Streisand. Steve Schapiro and Lawrence Schiller
Limited edition signed by the photographers
In 1970 Barbra Streisand published a story in LIFE magazine titled 'Who Am I Anyway?' Renowned photojournalists Steve Schapiro and Lawrence Schiller sought to answer this question in their intimate and striking photographs of Streisand taken during her first five years in Hollywood, working to get beneath the veneer and capture 'the real Barbra'.
Featuring over one hundred images, many of which have never before been published, the book includes behind-the-scenes photographs from many of Streisand's most popular films including Funny Girl, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, The Way We Were, The Owl and the Pussycat, Up the Sandbox, Funny Lady, and A Star Is Born. The book also features classic portraits of the star with her directors, costars and confidantes, such as Elliott Gould, William Wyler, Sydney Pollack, Vincente Minnelli, Cis Corman, Omar Sharif, Kris Kristofferson, and Robert Redford. Through it all a picture emerges not of a singer who could act, but of an actress who could sing, write, direct, dance, and do just about anything she put her mind to.
