Photographer Tony Duran has worked his way from his Midwestern 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, Brad Pitt and many others. Whatever the subject matter, Duran’s sensual and graphic style always resonates. An Oscar-winning actress, well-designed furniture, or a young upstart model in French couture are all viable subjects for his lens. Strength, beauty, and sensuality are always in the forefront of his work.
Duran’s work is often provocative without crossing the line into distasteful. He has a sharp ability to redefine and recreate imaging of well-documented subjects. In his Iris Nights lecture, Duran will discuss the artistic journey that led him to land in Los Angeles, the place where he developed his eye and style, and where his career actually began.
