Photographer Stewart Cohen's new monograph is comprised of 50 portraits of compelling people ranging from the fascinatingly famous Prince Albert of Monaco to the simply fascinating Lucky Larry Bailey.

Accompanying each photograph in the subject's own hand is their response to Stewart's question, "What makes you unique as an individual?" This combination of images and personal commentaries, in what Cohen calls his 'bio-pic' project, goes beyond the traditional portrait book.

"Stewart Cohen and his camera work magic…he does more than capture people and their personalities. He explores their identity. Each page will delight you, and also make you think. It's a treasure," commented Walter Isaacson.

An artist's reception and book signing will be held Thursday, April 8th, from 6-9pm at Photographs Do Not Bend gallery, 1202 Dragon Street, Dallas, Texas 75207, (214.969.1852), http://www.pdnbgallery.com. The work will remain on display through April 14th. Artist's proceeds from print sales will be gifted to Big Thought, a nonprofit dedicated to improving public education by giving every child opportunities to engage in the creative process. http://www.bigthought.org.
