Canon Explorer of Light - Gregory Heisler

This event has passed. Its description is archived below.

Master portrait photographer Gregory Heisler has captured hundreds of celebrities and people of distinction - actors, musicians, artists, athletes, world leaders. On the evening of November 5th, Gregory will present some of his best work and tell the stories of the subjects and how their portraits were created - each a unique and creative process. Join us at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Atkins Auditorium to celebrate Gregory's career and the release of his first book "50 Portraits", which will be available for sale by Rainy Day Books with an opportunity to be signed by Gregory.

Gregory Heisler is a New York-based photographer whose technical mastery and thoughtful responsiveness allow him to creatively interpret an unusually broad range of subjects. Perhaps best known for the more than seventy Time magazine cover portraits he has created, his iconic portraits and innovative essays have also often graced the covers and pages of such magazines as Life, Sports Illustrated, Gentlemen's Quarterly (GQ), Esquire, ESPN, House and Garden, and The New York Times Magazine.
