USA Today

I made some portraits of Irish American novelist Colum McCann last year when he came to Austin to give a reading. His publisher (Random House) bought the rights to use one of the photos on the jacket of his new book, Let the Great World Spin. Subsequently, the photo has also been appearing alongside reviews of the new book, like this one in a recent issue of USA Today.

I’m not sure whether it was the book publisher or the newspaper that decided to crop off the sides of McCann’s face, but somebody (not me) decided he would look better with no ears.

I haven’t read the book yet, but his previous novels and short stories have been great, so I am eager to get my hands on this one.

Tech info: Contax 645 with Fuji C 220 film. 140mm f2.8 Carl Zeiss lens with Contax extension tube. Photographed with natural light.
