Los Angeles, August 04: Lady Gaga's forthcoming pictorial book will be “completely unfiltered” and include images of her in the shower and the bath.
The 25-year-old Born This Way hitmaker explained the self-titled visual dialogue - which will feature 350 black and white pictures taken of her by American fashion Photographer Terry Richardson over a 10-month period, reported MTV online.
“Terry was with me for [almost] a whole year, and, gosh, I didn't hold anything back from Terry... he was with me every minute, every moment.
“It's completely unfiltered. He has photographs of me waking up in the morning, brushing my teeth, in the bathroom, in the bathtub, the shower. And the thing about Terry, if you know anything about his photography, is that nothing is staged; I mean, that's sort of what he is renowned for. He can get you to do things and he can capture things that no one can ever capture,” she said.
Gaga, who has been captured in more than 100,000 images by Richardson, said the forthcoming project which will be released in November and feature an introduction written by the singer, includes “ridiculous” pictures.
“My favourite thing, honestly, is that [Terry] loved the fans. He shot the fans the same way he shot me: with no pretence. No ‘Well, she's put out records and they haven't.' None of that. The music was all of ours.”
“He would come backstage and he would say, ‘Oh my God, the fans!' And I'd say, ‘I know ... I know what you just photographed.' And he'd say, ‘Baby, wow!' And then he'd film me, like, peeing in a cup and, like, ridiculous things,” Gaga added. PTI
