about

Auden by Avedon, de Beauvoir by Cartier-Bresson, Duras by Doisneau, Proust by Man Ray, Huxley by Halsman, Apollinaire by Picasso, Arundhati Roy by Raghu Rai, Raymond Carver by Bob Adelman, Zadie Smith by Eamonn McCabe . . .Portrait of the Writers is a selection of 250 portraits of writers carried out by great photographers from the beginning of the twentieth-century to the present day, chosen by Goffredo Fofi. For each intense and penetrating image, the text explains the reason for the choice, recalls the masterpieces of the author, and narrates the story of the image: of the unique moment of the portrait.What is clear from this extensive, wide-ranging selection is the immense skill of the photographers who have observed writers, captured them, and presented them to history. Curiosity and memories are stimulated as much by the artists behind the lens as by their distinguished subjects.Goffredo Fofi, an essayist and a literature, drama, and film critic, is a preeminent figure in the Italian cultural environment. His engagement focuses on the relationship between social reality and its artistic representation. He has contributed to the birth of landmark journals such asQuaderni Piacentini,La Terra vista dalla Luna,Ombre rosse, andLinea d'ombra. He is editor ofLo Straniero, which he founded in 1997, and creator of Lo Straniero Award. Moreover, Fofi is an editorial advisor and collaborates withPanorama,Internazionale, andFilm TV magazines.
