"To have your picture taken by Tom Munro is kind of like smoking a bubblegum cigarette. You can strike a pose look cool, get all of the sweetness, and not suffer any side effects. Yes, there are side effects to having your picture taken. At least for me. They can make you look dangerous, and flawless and pretty and glamorous. There is an energy exchange between photographer and subject but if the chemistry isn’t right it can be a pretty painful experience: In fact you can often feel like you’ve just had the life sucked right out of you. I know this is a high-class problem. But I've had my picture taken a lot so you’ll just have to trust me on this one. Tom is probably the most easy-going, unaffected photographer I have ever worked with. If he’s nervous, he doesn’t show it. Cool as a cucumber. And here’s the other good news. Tom always makes you look foxy! And he does it in a disturbingly effortless way."
Madonna, excerpted from her foreword to Tom Munro.

Introduction by Madonna. Interview by Pierre Alexandre de Looz.

One of today's foremost fashion and celebrity photographers, Tom Munro has been making defining images since the mid-1990s. Munro achieves his results by encouraging his subjects to reinterpret their personalities for his lens, reveling in seductive roleplay or darkly-lit melodrama. The subjects gathered here include some of the biggest names in pop culture today—Ashton Kutcher, Brooke Shields, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Christina Ricci, Courtney Love, Daniel Craig, Dustin Hoffman, Ewan McGregor, Isabella Rossellini, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Aniston, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Julianne Moore, Justin Timberlake, Lauren Hutton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Linda Evangelista, Madonna, Marion Cotillard, Matt Dillon, Matthew McConaughey, Naomi Campbell, Patrick Dempsey, Rob Lowe, Scarlett Johansson, Stephanie Seymour and Tom Cruise, to name only a few. This volume—Munro's first monograph—affirms his status as a portraitist of the first rank.English by birth, Tom Munro moved to New York in 1990, embarking on his own career as a photographer in 1997, and achieving overnight success with his early editorial shoots for British Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Over the last ten years, Munro has contributed to some of the world's most prestigious magazine publications including Vogue, Italian Vogue, L'Uomo Vogue, Russian Vogue, China Vogue and Details. Munro's dedication to his craft has attracted some of the fashion and beauty industries' most prestigious names, including Armani, Banana Republic, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Converse, Gap, Givenchy, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, L'Oreal, Moschino, as well as music icons such as Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake and Madonna. Most recently Munro directed Madonna's music video “Give it to Me,” the success of which led to him directing a second video, “Die Another Day,” and shooting the book for her Sticky and Sweet world tour.
