Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut, in the dining room of the Hotel Bethlehem in the spring of 1996, was fully aware of what I was looking for. He actively participated in the shoot, and instinctively assumed various poses with virtually no direction from me. I'm sure that's because for a long time he was married to author and photographer Jill Krementz. She apparently schooled him well. The shoot was commissioned by the director of public relations of Moravian College, which by the way is my alma mater.
