From Sarasota Magazine, December 6, 2018
Sheehan comes to (New College of Florida in) Sarasota on Dec. 12 to promote his new book AUTHOR.
Photographer Beowulf Sheehan has photographed cultural icons, artistic masterminds and global political leaders—Hugh Jackman, Margaret Atwood and Joe Biden have all sat in front of his camera. But he has a love for the written word, too, and in his new book, AUTHOR: The Portraits of Beowulf, Sheehan turns the lens on writers, journalists, poets and playwrights, from Roxane Gay to Toni Morrison to J.K. Rowling. The book is scheduled to be released in January 2019, but it’s already receiving considerable buzz—the Los Angeles Times lauded AUTHOR in its fall 2018 book preview, the only photography book to make the list.
And this month, Sheehan is coming to New College of Florida to promote AUTHOR. The event is free and open to the public; ahead of his visit, we asked Sheehan to share more about AUTHOR and his glittering career.
