Description

life.love.beauty "This book takes you on a photographic voyage through my life so far." –Keegan Allen
Keegan Allen is currently known to fans of the ABC Family hit television series, Pretty Little Liars. He has also appeared in numerous independent films and made his New York Stage debut in the acclaimed MCC production of Small Engine Repair.
Keegan was given his first camera at age nine, and began a lifelong study and pursuit of photography. life.love.beauty is a selection of photographs taken since his childhood. It's a photo journey through the life of an intensely creative soul whose expression finds various forms: in acting, in poems and stories, lyrics and music, but above all in photography. This book's content resonates in the commonality we all share on our own journeys while unveiling an inside look into a world that very few experience.
Organized into three broad groups—life, love, and beauty—the book ranges over the public and private side of Keegan Allen and his world. A child of Hollywood, whose father was also an actor and his mother a painter, Keegan roams freely through that realm, photographing his fellow actors on set, behind the scenes; and recording the amazed, gleeful, sometimes weeping fans that flock to his television and career related events.
Allen also has an eye for the anonymous and the unexpected: the woman gazing dreamily from the balcony of a run-down hotel; the rifle-toting dog walker who seems to have emerged from the 19th century; the performers and denizens of Venice Beach and also the streets of New York, some of them chasing the dream of fame, others having long-since abandoned it; the little boy amid in the crowd in an enormous airport; portraits of lovers kissing on subways, in parks, and on the streets. Traveling from California to New York to Paris and back, as well as through the American west, he finds beauty in both urban and rural places: from large-scale landscapes to glimpses of light transforming what it touches.
Keegan's poems, stories, captions and musings, song lyrics, and journal pages complement the photographs on this journey. He provides an account of growing up just off the Sunset Strip, coming into his own as an actor/artist, dealing with public recognition while maintaining a very private life, falling in and out of love, and acknowledging the influence of his family, friends, fans, and loved ones.
life.love.beauty is an unusually intimate and revealing book: a delight for anyone who values photography, and a gift for the many fans who already follow Keegan's career.
Keegan's real passion comes through in both his photographs and candid story telling in this unique photo-journal.

    This is seriously one of the best books you will ever read. It covers his childhood, sets, acts, random pictures, and more. Each picture has a cute little story behind it. I've read this book so many times that I can practically recite it. I recommend it to everyone. Take your time and read this, you learn something new each time you read it. Honestly, Keegan went above and beyond on this book. Take your time and read it. You won't regret it.
  • So so so beautiful

    Keegan you are truly talented and inspiring. Your book opened me up to a world I never knew and into your heart. It was so amazing to learn about you through your pictures. I felt such a strong connection to every picture and poem. I didn't know anything about photography and your book made me see the power in a picture. So amazing Keegs! P.s I am the girl who made you the collage with your favorite things on it and gave it to you in LA Love, Ariana A. Ig: arib3caughtthelovebug Twitter:aribee3

    Once again, Keegan allows us to look through his lens and see life the way he perceives it. There are moments that will make you tear up, consider things you haven't in years, and laugh until you cry (throwing crayons over barbed wire fences). You will be able to see Keegan as more than Toby Cavanaugh on PLL. He is a wonderful being. Kind, compassionate, and just a REAL guy. There is more to him than being everybody's favorite bad boy turned police officer on tv. Thank you Keegan for showing us your world. (@glitterandgoldenrain on Instagram)

    Keegan Allen has blown my mind with this book. Reading it just gives your mind a peace and the pictures that were taken are truly breathtaking. I could honestly read this book everyday. Life Love Beauty was definitely one of the best purchases I have ever made. Starting with life, the pictures of scenery are one of a kind. Keegan Allen takes you through his childhood and family by breathtaking pictures and captions that are dear to your heart, regardless if you know him. Love was the next section filled with all of the things that Keegan Allen has been apart of in his career in life. Pictures of his co-actors/actresses and special places that he has been apart of. The pictures make you feel like you are actually there. Finally, my favorite if Beauty. The entire section was the definition of beauty. Not only are the pictures the best, but the writing and poems are just mind blowing and beautiful. I could read them all day, along with looking at the pictures. Purchasing this book both on iTunes for the go, and the hardcover was the best decision of my life. I couldn't be happier with what Keegan Allen has done and given us with this book. Purchase this book. You could never be sorry. (Instagram kristintmartin) thank you Keegan Allen for the most amazing book I will ever have in my hands and on the go. You have inspired my life so much with this book and I couldn't thank you enough.
