Gregor Heisler at Webster: Wednesday, 6 April 2011

Canon Explorers of Light is bringing extraordinary photographer Gregory Heisler to Webster University on the evening of Wednesday, 6 April. More details will be announced too, but clear your calendars!

Gregory Heisler is a New York-based photographer whose technical mastery and thoughtful responsiveness allow him to creatively interpret an unusually broad range of subjects.

He is perhaps best known for the more than fifty Time magazine cover portraits he has created, yet his trademark editorial portrait covers and essays for Life, Sports Illustrated, Gentlemen's Quarterly (GQ), Esquire, ESPN, House and Garden and The New York Times Magazine have also received wide acclaim. He has photographed award-winning advertising campaign's for American Express, Benson & Hedges, Dewar's Profiles, Nike, Merrill Lynch, and Zocor.

Gregory has been profiled in magazine articles in Esquire, Communication Arts, Life, and numerous industry periodicals. Among the kudos he has received are the ASMP Corporate Photographer of the Year Award (1986), the Leica Medal of Excellence (1988), the World Image Award (1991), and the Alfred Eisenstadt Award (2000).

While his principal focus is portraiture, Gregory's enthusiasm, curiosity, and drive bring him an unconventional range of projects. His love of the craft, manifested in his "hands-on" approach to every aspect of the photographic process, keeps him intimately involved in the creation of his imagery.
