David Hyde Pierce Portrait Photography For Art & Soul

David Hyde Pierce

David Hyde Pierce reminds me of a modern day Buster Keaton. He can do more than a raised eyebrow than most physical comedians can do with their entire body. A group of David Hyde Pierce fans tracked me down so I promised to tell a the story behind the the time I shot of David. I photographed David in Beverly Hills during Oscar Week for the ART & SOUL book shot in partnership with The Creative Coalition and Sony. The book pairs portraits of celebrities with their hand-written testimonials about the importance of the arts. The book was taken to the White House and Congress in May 2009 to successfully advocate for increased funding for the arts and arts education.

  1. As I’ve already said to you, I REALLY like this series. It’s one of my favorite series of portraits ever. I think the simple lighting, background and composition really puts more emphasis on the personality of each of the subjects, and that’s what a portrait should be about.

    It was a pleasure meeting you in 2009 and I wish you all the best in 2010!
