ROBERT WILSON VIDEO PORTRAITS: ISABELLE HUPPERT & BRAD PITT

For this eclectic series, Wilson interprets celebrities as cultural icons. He pays a subtle hommage to Edward Steichen's famous image of Garbo by shooting Isabelle Huppert with face in hands, staring pointedly at no one in particular. Meanwhile, a perfectly-sculpted Brad Pitt, clad in designer white shorts and matching socks, stands patiently on a street in the midst of a rainstorm. When the rain stops, a measured moment of violence erupts within him.
