Danish-born artist and photographer Kenneth Willardt celebrates the launch of The Beauty Book, a photography compendium collecting more than 85 celebrity subjects. Willardt’s photo compositions capture the likes of Adriana Lima, Jennifer Lopez, Mila Jovovich, Chloe Sevigny, Gwen Stefani and Lara Stone with intimacy, connecting them with the camera and audience observing the images.

The Beauty Book also features 30 “interactive augmented reality” features that can be accessed by scanning specially marked images with the Kenneth Willardt App for iPhones/iPads (coming soon) and Androids (Google Play).

If you’re in New York, stop by 558 Gallery from November 8 to December 7 for an exhibition of Willardt’s photography from the book. They will be displayed as fine art prints with accompanying audio streamed via headphones hanging from the gallery’s ceiling. The Beauty Book is available from teNeues and Amazon.
