IRIS Nights Lecture Series: Architecture, Sex, and Celebrity
Tony Duran has worked his way from his Mid-Western upbringing to the forefront of celebrity and fashion photography. Duran has shot for a plethora of magazines culminating in iconic photographic relationships with superstars Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt to name just a very few.
Duran’s sensual and graphic style resonates whatever the subject matter. An Oscar-winning actress, well-designed furniture, or a young upstart model in French couture could all be viable subjects for his lens. Strength, beauty, and sensuality are always in the forefront. Duran’s work is often provocative without crossing the line into distasteful. His ability to redefine and recreate imaging of well-documented subjects has put Duran’s work in his very own category. Duran will discuss his journey as an artist that led him to land in Los Angeles, the place where he developed his eye and style, and where his career actually began.
