Photography book + Freedom Awards live  
François Nars is celebrating the 15th anniversary of the founding of his eponymous company by combining two of his favorite things — beauty products and photography — in a new book.
Like Nars' earlier book, "X-Ray," the portraits are intended to transform their subjects into new personas — but the twist this time is that there are two inspirations for each shot, an iconic image, person or emotion and a classic Nars product. The book features portraits of 15 celebrities: Marc Jacobs, Isabella Rossellini, Amber Valletta, Dayle Haddon, Naomi Campbell, Amanda Lepore, Daphne Guinness, François Vincentelli, Natasha Poly, Lisa Marie Smith, Olivier Theyskens, Carla Gugino, Shalom Harlow, Tyson Ballou and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
After each celebrity was shot at Industria, Nars handed them a Leica camera and asked them to shoot pictures of their own, using the product used in their Nars portrait as an inspiration. These shots, like the book and the celebrity portraits, will be available for sale for 30 days at 15x15project.com.

Just 1,500 copies of the $80 book will be produced; each will be hand-numbered. Any copies that do not sell on 15x15project.com will be sold via narscosmetics.com.
