BIO: Ken Heyman was a Magnum photographer. He shot over 150 assignments for Life magazine, has authored 54 books, and is a founder of the International Center of Photography. Through his 20-year collaboration with Dr. Margaret Mead, Heyman traveled to more than 60 countries and co-authored two acclaimed books with the distinguished anthropologist, helping define visual anthropology and revolutionizing perceptions of cultural diversity. Heyman’s contemporary work includes Hip Shots, a series of images revealing people in their most candid, simple, and purest form. His work was showcased in a dual-site retrospective at CEPA and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery(2007). Following the success of Ken Heyman: Being Human, CEPA was awarded an American Masterpieces Visual Arts Touring Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. www.kenheyman.photoshelter.com

STATEMENT: Both images appear in Pop Art, a book written by John Rublowsky (published by Thomas Nelson & Sons in 1965). The book’s exploration of the Pop Art movement, focusing on Lichtenstein, Oldenburg, Rosenquist and Warhol, was richly illustrated with photographs by Ken Heyman. This image was included in the exhibition Ken Heyman: Pop Portraits (Albright-Knox Art Gallery in collaboration with CEPA Gallery, Buffalo, NY, June 15–August 26, 2007). Note: The silk-screened image in Warhol’s right hand was used by the U.S. Postal Service on a commemorative stamp in 2001. (Stamp included with Lot)
