One of my very favorite writers (the kind of writer I wanted to be until I realized I tell better stories with pictures than with words), Susan Orlean, launched her Kindle Single, Animalish, today. I have photographed Susan several times – for the book River of Words, and for Edible Hudson Valley magazine – and let me tell you, she is so much fun. And she used one of my portraits of her with her brood on the cover of the Single! Read an interview with Susan in today’s New York Times. Order a copy of the essay here.
