Scenes From the Kitchen:And the living room, and the bedroom. A scrapbook of stars in their native habitats.

Viewing these photographs, saturated as many are with personal detail, feels slightly illicit, as though one has just rummaged through a stranger’s medicine chest or taken a furtive peek in his refrigerator. But it also demystifies the subjects depicted. (They’re “Just Like Us,” as contemporary tabloids never fail to remind us.) Debbie Harry and Chris Stein might have been rocking CBGB by night, but by day they are engaged in the banal act of making a sandwich in their utterly banal East Village kitchen, complete with animal-print oven mitts and a bowl of change on the fridge.
