Don Denton
Publisher: 
Banff Centre Press

In 1996, photographer Don Denton set out to create a photographic archive of prominent Canadian authors. First Chapter: The Canadian Writers Photography Project collected a sampling of his project to date, including well-known writers such as Margaret Atwood, George Bowering, Karen Connelly, and Michael Turner, as well as newer faces on the Canadian writing scene. Due to the positive response to First Chapter, Don Denton offers a follow-up, pointing his lens at such Canadian authors as Douglas Coupland, Camilla Gibb, and Bill Richardson. Each of the fifty photographs is paired with a statement about the writing life from the profiled author. Advice ranges from quirky, tongue-in-cheek quips to serious contemplations of the creative process. Second Chapter shows the faces of CanLit in a revealing light.
