I’m excited to see Anthony DePalma’s book, “The Cubans,” reviewed in the New York Times! I photographed his author’s portrait for the book jacket. Take a look at the review here: https://nyti.ms/2TAG5dC

I was looking to create a portrait that would match the subject of his book and capture the feeling of Latin America and the tropics. This project was very dear to me since I’ve traveled and  photographed in Cuba and I’ve been fascinated with the country. I can’t wait to read the book.

“Book Jacket Portraits” are one of the many kinds of professional headshots I’ve made a career doing. Whether it be author portraits, album covers, or LinkedIn and social media photographs, working with artists and academics has always been one of the real joys of my career.
