Gary Lee Boas

http://garyleeboas.com/ "Gary Lee Boas' candid snapshots offer us an intriguing view of celebrities between 1966 and 1980. From his teens, sometimes with his mother, other times with fellow autograph hunters, he would travel to New York and wait for hours outside TV talk shows, media events and stage doors, hoping to meet his favourite celebrity. This was the era before John Lennon was shot by a fan and the film star Ronald Reagan became President. Boas lives in the unremarkable blue collar town Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and has spent all his spare time gathering his formidable collection of star paraphernalia.
Through his work, which inhabits an area between fantasy and reality, we can start to examine our fascination with fame. His subject is the complete spectrum of popular media celebrity from porn stars and pageant queens to politicians and actors. Boas - a shy character - talks in an almost predatory way about his ability to catch shots of the stars. From his plethora of anecdotes he has clearly built relationships with the likes of Katharine Hepburn and was even invited to Richard Nixon's funeral; obviously the stars basked in the attention he showered on them. This reciprocal relationship between adoring fan and stars is perfectly illustrated in Boas' shot of himself stood next to Julie Christie - we see a temporary uncanny resemblance - they adopt a similar pose and hairstyles with Boas appearing at ease next to his heroine".
