Photographer Gregory Heisler admits that the process of making a portrait is fraught with unease.
The sitter, Heisler says, doesn't want to face reality. For the photographer, that's all there is.
Greg Heisler has spent a quarter century photographing covers for Time, Life and Sports Illustrated.
In the second half of Tuesday's Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with the photographer about his new book: Gregory Heilser 50 Portraits, which includes a collection of subjects ranging from O.J. Simpson to Joni Mitchell, Michael Bloomberg to Carl Lewis.
Hear in KC: Gregory Heisler will speak about "The Evocative Portrait" at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art tonight at 7. You'll find more information at ASMP-KC.org
