Céline Dion is one of the most immediately recognized, widely respected, and successful performers in pop music history, having sold more than 200 million albums. This collection of over 600 previously unpublished photographs — from tender family moments and glimpses of Céline with other celebrities and stars to private backstage views and captivating scenes on the stage — gives fans unprecedented access to the woman with pop music’s most influential voice.
In the text accompanying the photos, brilliantly written by Diane Massicotte, Céline: Beyond the Image is also the story of Laurent Cayla, a photographer who struggles with alcohol and drugs and who leaves despair behind as he spends time with the vibrant C éline and René. Revealing the never–before–seen side of an international superstar, C éline: Beyond the Image also includes a foreword from Céline and René.
DIANE MASSICOTTE has been working in the arts for over 30 years, first as a journalist at Journal de Montréal and now as a passionate blogger. She interviewed Laurent Cayla for over 30 hours for this book.
