In each boxed set a signed first printing of the book is accompanied by one of four signed prints, each product in an edition of twenty-five copies.
With an emphasis on his iconic portraiture, this volume considers the body of work of a top photographer whose unique sensibility is both adaptable and instantly recognizable. Winters is responsible for the definitive portraits of some of Hollywood's most photographed A-listers (Gwyneth Paltrow, Denzel Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio) and music superstars (Bono, Eminem, Willie Nelson). His voracious passion for the quirky and the creative also draws him to visual artists, scientists, architects, and everyday, extraordinary Americans.
