Talent has entered it's 10th year under the guidance of A. Brooks, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief who recognized the need to provide a platform to showcase emerging talent, increase exposure and assist in the marketing of the magazine. Herself a poet, "Brooks" was educated at Columbia University and felt the demand to create a magazine to promote the arts.
Guest Editor and Contributing Celebrity Photographer, Stephanie Parker collaborated with Brooks to produce a bountiful 2007 Fall Issue that features reprinted articles from the past 10 years as well as fresh material to reflect the constantl changing art and entertainment scene around the globe.
Embracing a camera at the ripe-young age of seven, Parker learned her photo-journalistic skills in high school and specialized in apparel design in college. She began to find pleasure in documenting celebrity and cultural lifestyles having traveled in over twenty-four countries and tracking the New York City art scene. Parker now considers herself a blend of paparazzo and society photographer with a touch of influence from the late Helmut Newton to whom she was a muse.
In this issue, Parker offers a rare insight into the life of music-icon and co-founder of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun combined with her coverage of the 2007 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Awards. While documenting of the 2007 Songwriters Hall of Fame Awards, Parker captured "The Golden Songstress" Dolly Parton and Brooks engaged in a private conversation! Images on her celebrity photography page range from a glowing H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco posing with Scott McClintock (producer of film Alien Technology) taken in 1992, the sapphic, sexy models at the 2000 Cannes International Film Festival; the "daring darling" of CNN, Anderson Cooper and the dignified Mayor Dinkins (flanked by Toni G. Fay and Chester Higgins Jr.) at the recent Gordon Parks Awards Dinner; Vinny Parco, a top P.I. cavorting with Brooks and rounded off with the effervescent Lord Maurice Saatchi, an honoree at the St. George's Society 237th annual English Ball.
