VG+. Now out of print, Ricas y Famosas is a good photography book that show us a lifestyles far away from our routine. 'The following images depict actual settings. The photographic subjects are representing themselves. Any resemblance with real events is not coincidental' This sentence introduces a disturbing book about Mexico's millionaires in their huge mansions and luxury apartments in questionable taste ;) A profoundly private look into the world the women, the men, and also occasionally some couples, that pose in front of striking spaces, put on their best clothes and display their collections and riches. For years (1994 to 2001), Rossell visited this minority and had the sole mission of documenting the objects that this particular group of people decide to bring into their homes, the personal environment they inhabit and the style they choose to identify with. And this book contain those photographs you'll look with great astonishment and voyeuristic curiosity.
