Booker Prize Authors Captured
The shortlist has been announced for the 2011 MAN Booker Prize.
Of the six authors chosen, I photographed three of them at this year's Edinburgh International Book Festival - Stephen Kelman, Carol Birch and A. D. Miller. In addition, I have photographed one of the other nominees, Julian Barnes, at previous EIBFs. Sadly, the other two, Patrick deWitt and Esi Edugyan were nowhere to be seen at the world's largest literary festival this year!
The winner will be announced on Tuesday 18 October at a dinner at London’s Guildhall and will be broadcast on the BBC. The winner will receive £50,000 and each of the six shortlisted authors, including the winner, will receive £2,500 and a designer bound edition of their book.
