Beowulf Sheehan - Author: The Portraits of Beowulf Sheehan

Upcoming Event
Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Perhaps the foremost literary portrait photographer working today, Sheehan is known for the beauty, nuance, and insight of his haunting compositions. His first book presents two hundred of his finest portraits of prominent writers, playwrights, historians, journalists, and poets such as Roxane Gay, Patti Smith, Masha Gessen, Karl Ove Knausgaard, and J.K. Rowling. These rich black-and-white images were taken in a variety of settings—the photographer’s studio, the subject’s home, concert halls, public spaces—and all bring out new facets of writers we’ve grown to know and love through their words. Sheehan introduces the volume with an essay recalling some of his most memorable moments with the amazing people he’s photographed.
