WRITERS: photographs by Nancy Crampton
Schatten Gallery
Featuring work by: Nancy Crampton

Exhibition: Mon, Mar 26, to Fri, Nov 2 2012

WRITERS features 50 photographs by Nancy Crampton of authors from a range of genres including poets, playwrights, novelists, activists, and journalists paired with texts from each on the craft of writing. Photographs include Margaret Atwood, W.H. Auden, James Baldwin, Gwendolyn Brooks, Seamus Heaney, Barbara Kingsolver, Norman Mailer, Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, Maurice Sendak, Anne Sexton, Gloria Steinem, Robert Penn Warren, Eudora Welty, Kevin Young, and new U.S. Poet Laureate, Natasha Trethewey.

Since the early 1970s hundreds of book jackets and magazine articles have featured photographs by Crampton, the official photographer of the Unterberg Poetry Center at the 92nd Street Y in New York City famous for its literary readings.

In conjunction with Crampton’s photographs, exhibition curators Julie Delliquanti and Elizabeth Chase have invited members of the Emory community to curate materials from the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library relating to many of the authors whose photographs are on view.

The exhibition highlights Emory as a place that celebrates authors and fosters a writing community — a community that is broadly conceived and includes writers on campus, those they bring to campus, and the Library as a place for the study of writers and writing.
