This week Mario Casilli’s photographs will be released as a book, which you can place on your 1980s chrome and glass coffee table next to your lines of coke. Casilli "defined the fabulous and outrageous entertainment industry in the 1980s with his larger-than-life portraits, featuring his trademark backlighting and bright colour palette"—think Joan Collins, the cast of Knight Rider, Oprah, shoulder pads, hairspray and jewelry. So ethereal, so feathered, so aerobic-chic—click through for a preview.
