Dan Winters's America: Icons and Ingenuity
||October 6, 2012
12:00 AM to 11:59 PM
||Dan Winters is a nationally-known photographer who has spent more than two decades creating memorable images for publications such as the New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, GQ, Rolling Stone, and many others. Best known for his iconic celebrity portraits, Winters has photographed public figures ranging from the Dalai Lama to President Barack Obama, Hollywood celebrities from Leonardo DiCaprio to Dame Helen Mirren, and authors and artists from Jeff Koons to William Christenberry. His portraits range from hauntingly simple images, often characterized by their distinctive lighting, revealing expressions, and muted backdrops, to highly-staged portraits shot on elaborate, custom-built sets that can take the artist and his crew up to several weeks to construct. // The exhibit is open all day, every day through Nov. 11 at Telfair Academy.
