Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 3, 2010
Meet photographer/film director Stewart Cohen at the Neiman Marcus Willow Bend celebration of Fashion’s Night Out – the place to be on fashion’s hottest night.
Cohen will be signing copies of his coffee table book, Identity: A Photographic Meditation From The Inside Out. There’ll be appetizers from Sambuco 360, Dish and Cyclone Anaya’s. Champagne and cupcake bars (with cupcakes by Sugar Queens Cupcakes), and three runway fashion shows at 6, 7, and 8 pm.
Cohen’s 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,” remarked Walter Isaacson in his recent review of the book.
Stewart Cohen will be signing books at Neiman Marcus in Willow Bend, The Man’s Store on level 1, 2201 Dallas Parkway, Plano, Texas on Friday, September 10th from 6pm – 9pm, 972.629.1700 or 877.631.6263.
