Dwayne Johnson’s fans will soon get an inside look at the remarkable life and career of the Hollywood actor thanks to one of his closest friends.

The upcoming St. Martin’s Press publication of “The Rock: Through the Lens: His Life, His Movies, His World“, will feature “twenty years’ worth of candids, family moments, and snapshots from film and television sets, many never-before-seen”, all compiled by his longtime friend and producing partner, Hiram Garcia.

Sharing the news on Instagram, Hiram Garcia wrote:

“Excited to finally share the announcement of my book THE ROCK: Through the Lens: His Life, His Movies, His World. Available 9/8/2020.

What initially started out as me simply curating my photos to take DJ and myself on a trip down memory lane ended up becoming something much more that I realized others might be interested in seeing too.

This book is a photographic journey spanning several decades of @therock’s life. I’ve known the big, bald, brown, tattooed guy since I was 15 and in this book, you will see images ranging from when he and I first met, to photos of him entertaining the world to quiet moments with his family. DJs the biggest star on the planet but to me he’s a brother, a colleague and a best friend. I’m excited to give a special peek into his world and share the stories behind the images. I can’t wait for you guys to check it out!”

Garcia, who is Dwayne Johnson’s producing partner and President of Production at Seven Bucks Productions, is the perfect choice to give fans a closer glimpse inside the illustrious life of the former WWE star through action-packed photos and candid images of Johnson as a family man.

As a longtime collaborator, Garcia had unprecedented access to capture images on the sets of Johnson’s films, including Jumanji: The Next Level, Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and Jungle Cruise, which was pushed back to a July 30, 2021, release due to the coronavirus pandemic.
