Today marks the five year anniversary of one of my favorite shoots ever! So here’s to wishing a very Happy Annie-versary to Anne Hathaway, who I photographed five years ago today for the ‘Art & Soul‘ book shot in partnership with The Creative Coalition and Sony. Thanks for everything Annie – wishing you another great five!
Looking for a last minute Christmas Gift? Want to do something to support the arts? Here’s a way you can do both…
ART & SOUL is a 256-page over-sized coffee table book featuring portraits of 123 celebrities paired with their inspirational stories about how the arts has shaped their lives. The project, shot around the country over a 15-month period in partnership with The Creative Coalition and support of Sony, has been taken to Capitol Hill to lobby for Arts funding. The book feature portraits of many Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award-winners including Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington, Patricia Arquette, Adrien Brody, Alyssa Milano, Adrian Grenier, Taraji P. Henson, Tony Bennett, Kelsey Grammer, Paula Abdul, Tim Daly, Taye Diggs and Samuel L. Jackson.
A portion of the proceeds goes to The Creative Coalition to promote Arts in Education.
“So giant-size big – the book needs a grand piano, not a coffee table.” – CINDY ADAMS/NEW YORK POST
“When you look through the book, you’ll be reminded of why you became a creative artist in the first place. Seeing the magnificent portraits and reading the words of these enormously talented performers can’t help but inspire you.” – DIGITAL PHOTO PRO
“There were prints that were so beautiful they may as well have been paintings.” – CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Celebrity portraits from ART & SOUL will be on exhibit in the lobby of the W Hotel Los Angeles Westwood for the month of November 2011. Featured in the exhibit are portraits of Anne Hathaway, Samuel L Jackson, Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, Alyssa Milano, Kerry Washington, Cheryl Hines, Dana Delany, Tim Daly, Richard Schiff, DulÃ© Hill, Harry Belafonte, Lynn Whitfield and Chris Botti.
