In his photo book series One Day in the Life Of… photographer Tim Hailand gives fans an intimate look at the lives of celebrities like Scissor SistersJake Shears and Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe.

Some proceeds from the Radcliffe book help a cause Elton has supported, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. As for the Shears project, Elton provided the introduction. The book follows Jake in London prior to one of his group’s concerts. A portion of these proceeds goes to the EJAF.

Of the series, Hailand says: “The subjects that I choose to photograph are people that I genuinely admire. In this ‘One Day in The Life of’ work, I’m striving to create images that are at once both raw and intimate, yet treat the subject with respect and integrity. It is my goal to reveal a beautiful or vulnerable side to the subject that has not been revealed before. We live in a media-saturated world, where respect and integrity seem to be undervalued qualities in relation to celebrities, yet our society seems to have a limitless appetite for reality programming.’ I think we can have both closeness and quality, ‘realness’ and beauty.”

One Day in The Life of Jake Shears is now available at Amazon.com. Or you can try and win a copy by emailing comp@music-news.com.

Be sure to type ”JAKE!” in the subject line and include your name, address and phone number.
