Thousand Words: Portraits from the Key West Literary Seminar is Curt Richter's latest photographic collection of writers' portraits. The series captures the magnetism of authors drawn annually to a subtropical island rich with literary heritage. With moderator Cara Cannella, Edmund White, D.T. Max, and Curt Richter will discuss Key West's literary importance and creative influences on artists in different mediums.
An essay by Ann Beattie in Thousand Words provides insight into Key West and Richter's work. Portrait subjects include event participants Margaret Atwood, Michael Cunningham, Junot Díaz, Geoff Dyer, Adam Gopnik, Karen Russell, George Saunders, Gore Vidal, and Colm Tóibín, among many others.
