Scott Caan dabbles in just about everything. On top of starring in Hawaii Five-0, doing theater productions, and yes, his former life rapping in '90s hip hop group, The Whooliganz, he's been taking photos over the past decade, shooting intimate and documentary snapshots of his life, his travels and his A-list friends.
Caan credits his start in photography in the early 2000s to his Nikon FE camera he got and the guidance of his mentor, cinematographer Phil Parmet (Grindhouse), whom he met on set of Dallas 362.
He's releasing his second book of photographs, "Vanity
," on October 30. However, he'll be signing early copies of the book tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. at the opening reception of his photography show at the Martha Otero Gallery
in the Fairfax District. His exhibition will be on display through September 13.
Caan spoke with LAist about the peculiar definition of "vanity," his bond with Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo who wrote the introduction to his book, and more.

I was hoping to get to this on opening night, but family obligations is preventing that. Since I know his exhibition will be there for 2 weeks, I'll try to go on my birthday, it just won't be the same as being there when he's there.
