Star Quality is a part of the Photographic Project by Brooklyn-based artist, photographer and publisher Ofer Wolberger. The original idea of this ambitious and creative project was to publish one book each month for one year. It turn into two and a half years and twelve beautiful books. Star Quality was the first book in the series. It was inspired by the golden age of Hollywood. The photographs are reconfigured glamour photographs of stars from that period. Each image has  two superimposed portraits. These black and white images create a certain atmosphere, making one think about the idea of identity, fame and beauty.

A great artist book with brilliant concept, elegant design and nice printing.
