Cher kissing in the White House, Andy Warhol sleepy in his nightshirt: Bob Colacello, America’s social chronicler, met them all and photographed many. Long before paparazzi poisoned images.

Bob Colacello, 74, has already published a few photo books. He accompanies society as one of the glamorous, most well-networked New Yorker journalists. One of his generous beliefs has always been, never to jealously withhold one’s friends from others. It Just Happened (Ivorypress), is the title of his most recent coffee-table book, compiled during Lockdown from innumerable boxes that make up his imposing archive.
