Curt Richter is an internationally-renowned photographer, the winner of a John Kobal Portrait Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a Fulbright Grant, among other honors. He may be best known for the landmark collection "A Portrait of Southern Writers," published in 2000 as the culmination of a commission from Louis D. Rubin Jr. to photograph the founding members of the Fellowship of Southern Writers. Since 2008, Richter has joined us in Key West each January to continue his larger and ongoing series of portraits of American writers.
The images below are digital outtakes selected by Richter from this year’s portrait sessions in his temporary studio at the Kress Building in Key West.
