Paul Auster by Jï¿½rg Meyer
Jörg Meyer recently had the opportunity to photograph the distinguished author Paul Auster for Columbia Magazine. It's hard to overstate Auster's contributions to the world of writing - his books and plays have won numerous awards and his influence continues to shape young writers everywhere. Going in to the shoot Jörg was excited - portraits like this can truly can carry a lot of weight for both the photographer and his subject. But the final shot - wow. It really captures the intensity of Auster as an author and as a person - all the things that his mind has put down on paper are reflected in that gaze, with that light, in that room. Beautiful.
