Last year I had the honor of photographing a young author by the name of Nathaniel Rich, for the British magazine “Dazed & Confused” (website here). His first book had just been released, and immediately rose to the New York Times bestseller list. He was staying in Midcoast Maine while taking a break from what I am sure had been a whirlwind period for him. He was quiet and easygoing, and was honestly a dream to photograph…at ease in front of the camera, and the setting could not have been better. I actually made the decision to shoot with my medium format Contax 6×4.5, which I am glad about, and which the Editor was more than happy to let me do.
I have yet to read “The Mayor’s Tongue, and I feel quite foolish for not having had time to do so before the photo shoot. However, the reviews of his work have been nothing but wonderful. Below is a recent self-promotional mailer in which I have decided to use two of the images from that photo shoot.
