Texas Monthly

Here’s a screenshot from Texas Monthly (August, 2008) including my portrait of poet and memoirist Nick Flynn. I was surprised to come across this photo in TM–they ran it without communicating with me at all. I took the photo in 2001 during a trip to Provincetown, Massachusetts (I photographed Stanley Kunitz, Marie Howe, and Jason Schinder on the same trip). Nick liked the photo, and I was happy to let him use it as a book jacket photo for his second volume of poetry. I don’t think I signed away any broader rights to the image, but since 2002 it has turned up in several places (usually credited, at least).

I’m delighted to have one of my photos in Texas Monthly, which is known for good photography and good writing. But I’m surprised that a well-established magazine with a professional staff would run a photo without first securing permission from the photographer. I suppose I might be compounding the problem by running this screenshot on my blog without getting permission from TM

Tech specs? Contax 645 with 80mm f2 Carl Zeiss lens, Profoto monolight with large Chimera softbox.
