Last Wednesday, May 20th, on the occasion of the publication of Dan Winters’s first monograph, Periodical Photographs (Aperture, May 2009), the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, presented a lovely evening with the top editorial photographer whose work is included in the museum’s permanent collection. Winters, currently a resident of Austin, Texas, captivated fans with an engaging lecture about his illustrious career in the museum’s spacious Brown Auditorium, followed by a reception and book signing. The charming and accommodating Mr. Winters chatted away with fans and signed lots of books. Anne Wilkes Tucker, the MFAH curator of Photography, introduced Winters, and was host for the evening along with Bernard Bonnet, buyer for the museum’s bookstore.
