USA- CPI and powerHouse Books are proud
to announce Precious (November, 2004). The breath of Johnny
Depp, the feet of Twyla Tharp, the scars of
Bruce Willis, the heart of Anderson Cooper.
When award-winning photographers Melanie Dunea and
Nigel Parry asked, “What is the most precious part of your
body,” the answers revealed were as diverse as their famed subjects.
The result is Precious, a vibrant and intimate collection of
photographs, masterfully captured in both color and black & white.
