San Diego Artists Become Subjects In New Photo Book

GUEST:

Jennifer Spencer, San Diego photographer, “The Artist Portrait Project: A Photographic Memoir Of Portrait Sessions With San Diego Artists”

Transcript

San Diego photographer Jennifer Spencer goes behind the scenes with San Diego artists in a new book “The Artist Portrait Project: A Photographic Memoir Of Portrait Sessions With San Diego Artists.”

The book has photos of 50 San Diego artists, along with short descriptions of Spencer's photo sessions with them.

"I tried to capture the essence of the artist when I went to their studio," Spencer said. "But through that, I'm hoping that the viewer will begin to better understand what the artist is all about."

Spencer talks about her new book Wednesday on Midday Edition.

The book launch event for “The Artist Portrait Project: A Photographic Memoir Of Portrait Sessions With San Diego Artists” is on Thursday, July 19 at 7:30 p.m. at Warwick’s in La Jolla.
