A great holiday gift choice
"As gifted at writing as he is at photography." This is how writer-photographer Louise Abbott begins her December 13 review of Closer to Home: The Author and the Author Portrait by Terence Byrnes. In fact, CTH is one of her six best Holiday gift choices for photography books in the Montreal Gazette's annual recommended list. She goes on to say, "Like Leibovitz, he accepts the fact that a photographic portrait can never convey more than a partical truth and that subjects may have mixed feelings about the way they appear." Literary Photographer interviewed Byrnes earlier this fall and included some photographs from the book.
