How to Shoot Your Kids, Signed Presentation to Kim Basinger
This book is inscribed on the title page, “Kim this will change your life, Love, Arthur Elgort 9/97.” On that same page is Kim Basinger’s ownership signature.
How-to books, with their all-knowing, dictatorial commands sometimes grate. Not so this book. It contains just a few pages of text. The remainder contains photographs of fashion photographer Arthur Elgort’s three children. It is mostly instruction by inspiration and very much to the book’s credit. The photos are wonderful. The gist is tote the camera along everywhere in order to take advantage of natural occurring photo ops.“You parents loved to take pictures of special occasions. Go one past them. Make it just everyday life.”
