Dan Winters

He has photographed Barack Obama, Al Gore, Willie Nelson, Kate Winslet, and Sandra Bullock, among others. Known for the broad range of subject matter he is able to interpret, Winters is widely recognized for his celebrity portraiture, scientific photography, photographic illustrations, and photojournalist stories. He has won more than 100 national and international awards for his work, including the Alfred Eisenstadt Award for Magazine Photography and the First Place World Press Photo Award. Kodak honored him as an "icon" in its biographical "Legends" series.

Winters and his family live in Austin and Los Angeles. Central Texans have the opportunity to meet Winters just before he opens a new exhibition of his photographs in Los Angeles this summer. His photos are currently included in the permanent collections at the Harry Ransom Center and the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Claire O'Neill described the photographs in Winters' book for NPR in May 2009, "Stripped of fashion and styling, and minimally retouched, they're known for their timelessness. But the rest of his portfolio reveals an appreciation for -and deep understanding of - American culture."

Winters' work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, GQ, The New Yorker, Fortune, Entertainment Weekly, Texas Monthly, Rolling Stone, and many others. His clients include Nike, Microsoft, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Sony, Bose, Saturn, Warner Brothers, Dreamworks, and Paramount.

Periodical Photographs is published by Aperture, forward by Lynn Hirschberg, editor-at-large for the New York Times Magazine.
