Paul Auster by J�rg 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.
