End of Real by artist Itai Doron is a photographic diary of the places he visited while preparing exhibitions in different parts of the world during the 1990s. The photographs - or ‘postcards’ as Doron describes them - were taken using a $15 camera he picked up from Woolworths in Los Angeles, and they document the artist’s fascination with the dream-like world of fame, legends and celebrity.

Through seven stories from three countries, each made personal by Doron’s introductions, we are invited to visit places where fiction meets reality: the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles; the fatal route James Dean took to Salinas; an Elvis impersonators’ contest in Tel Aviv; the famous Shepperton Film Studios in London and the graves of countless film stars and modern day heroines from Marilyn Monroe to Marlene Dietrich and Princess Diana.

Designed by Intro, and with a foreword by Nicolas Roeg, cinematographer and director of cult masterpieces such as Don’t Look Now and Performance, End of Real is Doron’s first book project.
