The Photographs of Len Prince: October 21-December 21, 2011

Len Prince is a New York-based photographer who has produced an impressive range of work in a career that spans more than four decades. He excels at portraiture and is especially known for his work with celebrities such as Debbie Harry, Eddie Izzard, and Drew Barrymore. His striking photographs of the nude figure display his skill with composition and lighting.

Prince has recently completed a major body of work titled Self Possessed, for which he collaborated with Jessie Mann, the daughter and model of noted photographer Sally Mann. The Kinsey Institute is fortunate to have received a major gift of more than 225 Len Prince photographs from his long-time patron William Zewadski. This exhibition features a representative selection of prints from this donation.

This June, Len Prince spoke at length with Kinsey Institute Curator Catherine Johnson-Roehr about his artistic development, balancing the demands of commercial photography and art, and the special demands of photographing the nude figure.
