Heroes & Villains by photographers Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho is a collection of portraits surveying hundreds of the most intriguing personalities in today's pop culture movements such as Robert Williams, Mark Ryden, Marion Peck, Gabrielle Bell, David Choe, Shepard Fairey, Todd and Kathy Schorr, The Clayton Brothers, and Camille Rose Garcia. The resulting book unveils the persona, unique vision and inner character of over 100 of these iconic figures from their project. To further illuminate the motivations and impact of this diverse group of artists, this beautifully published hardcover volume includes an essay and fourteen in-depth interviews by Amanda Erlanson.
