Sharp

The result is Sharp, a collection the likes of which have never been seen before. Parry’s exacting precision, most spectacularly distilled in his disquieting close-ups of the most powerful people in the public eye, places the viewer face-to-face with pop culture movers and shakers on a level unprecedented in contemporary celebrity portraiture: Giorgio Armani’s steely-eyed determination; Sir Anthony Hopkin’s spine-chilling intensity; Meryl Streep’s delicate grace; Placido Domingo’s actor-like transparency under opera makeup; Asia Argento’s sexy demureness; Nicolas Cage’s “will kill you” attitude; Michael Caine’s serene distance; Tommy Lee Jones’ plaintiveness; and Christopher Walken’s evilness, and many, many others. All are framed tightly within Parry’s brilliant lenswork, allowing one repeated viewings that never tire or bore.
