'The Way We Were' is a stunning monograph of Hollywood's former glory days.

Julian Wasser became seriously interested in photography during his college years. He moved to Los Angeles in the 1960s on assignment for 'Time and Life.' In the two decades since the move, Wasser has taken some of the most iconic, instantly recognizable celebrity portraits to date. Ultimately, The Way We Were is a celebration of his photography during Hollywood's heyday. The collection includes an image of Joan Didion leaning against her Corvette for TIME magazine in 1986, a nude Eve Babitz engaged in a cutthroat chess mass with Marcel Duchamp at the Pasadena Art Museum and a shot of a young Hugh Hefner roller-skating at the Playboy Mansion.

If you're entranced by the days of Hollywood's past, then you'll no doubt delight in these amazing photographs.
