We are honored to celebrate the launch of AUTHOR, esteemed photographer Beowulf Sheehan‘s monograph. Sheehan will talk about his work and career with poet, writer, and critic Rowan Ricardo Phillips.
Sheehan’s work has been displayed in the Dostoevsky Museum, the International Center of Photography, the Museum of the City of New York, the New York Historical Society, and elsewhere. Subjects of his portraiture include Bono, Hillary Clinton, Stephen Colbert, Hugh Jackman, Yoko Ono, and Ai Weiwei.
A beautiful and moving collection of photographs by today’s foremost literary portrait photographer, AUTHOR captures the essence of some 200 writers, historians, journalists, playwrights, and poets from 35 countries, from Roxane Gay to Masha Gessen, Patti Smith to Zadie Smith, Karl Ove Knausgaard to J.K. Rowling, and Jonathan Franzen to Toni Morrison. (For a complete list of writers appearing in AUTHOR, click here.) Following an enlightening foreword by Salman Rushdie, Beowulf Sheehan shares an essay offering insights into the poignant and memorable moments he experienced while making these portraits. A treasured gift for readers and lovers of portrait photography, AUTHOR is the only book of its kind to appear in more than a decade.Buy tickets/get more info now
