Photographer Frank Bauer has been given the opportunity to work with some of the most famous faces known today, from Tilda Swinton to Iggy Pop to Jane Goodall. It's not a task that Bauer takes lightly: he photographs each subject with a delicate awareness of the nuance in each person's unique character and disposition.

Buaer gives us intimate glimpses into the lives of these public figures; he tells us a story that we haven't seen or heard before. The authenticity is so potent, it gives the viewer an almost voyeuristic thrill.

Whether you're gazing at an image of Steve McQueen stifling a yawn or Brigitte Hobmeier holding her hands up to her face, a meditative expression playing across her features, each image betrays something personal; something previously unknown, trying to articulate itself.
