Dennis Leupold · Mariah Carey
-ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU-
"All I Want For Christmas is You" celebrates its 25th anniversary and photographer Dennis Leupold lenses the pop legend Mariah Carey for the two-disc deluxe edition re-release.
"I really started with thinking, 'What are all the things I think about at Christmas?' Lights, presents, stockings, fireplaces," Carey says. "I've always loved Christmas so much my entire life, but I grew up not having a lot of money and not being able to experience it like the other kids did. I wanted Christmas to be perfect, but for a lot of different reasons, it didn't always end up working out well, coming from such a dysfunctional family. So I think when I wrote it, I just put every ounce of longing for that perfect moment in it."
