Richard & Famous is an awesome photo diary that contains several selfies taken by Australian photographer Richard Simpkin with some of the famous celebrities, athletes and political figures of the past few decades. The people depicted in these photos are incredibly diverse and range from Michael Jackson and Al Pacino to Nelson Mandela and the Dalai Lama.

What's incredible about these photos is that they weren't planned and didn't come about due to prior contact -- they came about because Simpkin somehow became really good at knowing where to find celebrities. It all began when he was a child and used to hang around near the locker rooms in sports stadiums to collect autographs. He then began pursuing photographs instead. By the 1990s, Simpkin had a whole album of images with celebrities, and began taking the hobby seriously.

Ultimately, Richard & Famous isn't just about the photographer showing off his selfies with celebrities, it's about remembering people who had a huge impact on the world.
