“In Art, a picture is worth a thousand words. In Literature, Las Vegas Authors, write a thousand words to tell a story.” -Andres Fragoso, Jr.
Full Scope Overview
“In art, a picture is worth a thousand words. In Literature, authors, write a thousand words to tell a story.” -Andres Fragoso, Jr.
Frequently-published author Andres Fragoso, Jr., and internationally acclaimed professional photographer, photojournalist and documentarian David de Hannay, are working together to mesh graphic art with contemporary, popular literature in one single exhibit, a program called Author Portrait Project.
By taking portraits of some of United States most outstanding local authors, Fragoso and de Hanney have created a way of presenting these authors from a different, prestigious perspective. Illustrations will come from the photographer's point of view. Narrative connecting readers to the authors by showcasing their personality, genre, and writing style will bring the project full-circle.
A display of United States authors through art exhibits across the country, and around the world. Each author portrait captures the genre, personality, and character of each author. Thus creating an existential experience for the art enthusiast and literary aficionado.
