would life be any different if you had a famous person’s name? chances are it will be but it not always be what you expected.
troy goodall – a new zealand based photographer worked on this exact same concept in his series titled ‘almost famous’.
created in collaboration with an iconic new zealand brand, the ‘almost famous’ series boasts of the who’s who of american entertainment and sports. a few of the people he came across were a ben affleck from dunedin, an anthony hopkins from wellington, a julia roberts from tauranga, sarah jessica parker from warkworth, jackie chan from auckland and a michael jordan from kelston.
while shooting them, he realised that each and every one of them had such incredible stories that actually border on the hilarious. from being hung up on while trying to make restaurant reservations to being stalked outside their hotel rooms on holiday. having a famous person’s name is not always a walk in the park.
