For thirty-five years, almost everyone who was anyone in the arts found themselves in Jack Mitchell's photography studio in New York City. This book distills the finest results of Mitchell's own artistic mission to portray the greatest actors, dancers, painters, composers, writers, choreographers, and musicians of his day.
Mitchell's list of subjects is a crash course in late twentieth-century art, including such luminaries as Mikhail Baryshnikov, Lauren Bacall, Alfred Hitchcock, Twyla Tharp, Jack Nicholson, Robert Rauschenberg, Meryl Streep, Luciano Pavarotti, Uta Hagen, Tommy Tune, Julie Andrews, Philip Glass, and on, and on.
In the sixties, his self-assigned goal of photographing the greatest painters and sculptors living in New York - for example, Isamu Noguchi, Louise Nevelson, Roy Lichtenstein, Ellsworth Kelly, Robert Indiana, Andy Warhol, and Claes Oldenburg - led to a retrospective exhibit in 1974.
Although the photographs that follow speak for themselves, captions accompany each one, providing a time-capsule context. Mitchell's wry sense of humor peeks out from behind the lens in these anecdotes about America's greatest living (and sometimes now deceased) legends.

About the Author:

Edward Albee was born on March 12, 1928. He was adopted as an infant by Reid Albee, the son of Edward Franklin Albee of the powerful Keith-Albee vaudeville chain. He was raised in great affluence and sent to preparatory and military schools. ending his formal education after a year and a half at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. Albee often clashed with his mother and eventually left home when he was 20 and moved to New York's Greenwich Village. Albee's first job was writing continuity dialogue for radio station WNYC. After using up the inheritance from his paternal grandmother, he took a variety of menial jobs until 1959 when The Zoo Story made him a famous playwright, first in Europe, where it premiered in Berlin, and then in New York. In 1960 it won the Vernon Rice Memorial Award. Albee's first and major "hit" was Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? which opened on Broadway in 1963. It ran for 664 performances and was made into a film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, and is probably Albee's most well known work. 1966's A Delicate Balance won Albee his first Pulitzer Prize. In 1975, Albee won his second Pulitzer with Seascape, and then his third with Three Tall Women in 1991. Three Tall Women enjoyed a sold-out success in New York and has been staged across the country and around the world. It received Best Play awards from the New York Drama Critics Circle and Outer Critics Circle. Albee has written 25 plays and over the years has received an impressive number of awards including two Tony Awards. Albee also teaches at the School of Theatre of the University of Houston and gives lectures on his work at colleges around the US.
