About the Author
Todd Oldham is one of the most beloved and mediagenic designers working today. Originally a couture fashion designer with several stores in New York, and a commentator on MTV's House of Style, Todd's career has evolved to include all areas of design, from film and photography to furniture and graphic art. Todd appears frequently as a consultant on NBC's Today, as well as on MTV's enormously popular Crib Crashers, for which Todd redesigns teenagers' homes in the likeness of their favorite stars' abode. Oldham designs his own line of dorm room furnishings for Target in addition to a line of furniture for La-Z-Boy, and he is currently developing a television series based on Handmade Modern. Most recently, he has become a contributing editor to ReadyMade magazine. He lives in New York City.
Born in New York City in 1940, Davis grew up in a working-class family in the Bronx. He spent his career as a photojournalist and worked for numerous European and U.S. magazines. In 1978 he became the photo editor for The National Enquirer, which led to many bizarre assignments.
Reviews

"The images in Strange Stories make a strong case for Gerald Davis as a unique and under-recognized talent, a keen observer of mid to late twentieth-century American life with a wry, playful sensibility that falls somewhere between William Eggleston and John Waters." --The Paris Review


"Davis had an eye for photographing the world in its often-brazen glory. The photographs in this book lay bare the stranger side of photography with candid shots of celebrities, odd buffet-style spreads of food, and even the macabre images of tagged cadaver toes and blood bathed car interior." --San Diego Book Review
