My writer friend Olympia Vernon just shared this link with me–it’s the photography of Marion Ettlinger, who captures writers in stunning black and white…(she’s #13–so dignified!). Check the link to see the photos, and read this excerpt from the NPR article:
Photographing a model who is both beautiful and comfortable before a camera is one thing. But how do you capture the intellect of a writer? Marion Ettlinger may not have an answer or a formula, but she still knows how to do it. She’s worked with Truman Capote, Haruki Murakami, Joyce Carol Oates, David Foster Wallace, Cormac McCarthy, Alice Munro… the list goes on. And despite the fact that these authors are not quite as comfortable as models, Ettlinger has done it with apparent ease.
