Peter Diamond—Winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize for Economics Sciences and Professor of Economics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Peter was the quickest portrait in the entire series. He does a lot of his work on a laptop in his living room, which is beautifully lit with floor-to-ceiling windows. Peter has been photographed numerous times and he understands the process. I started photographing him, and asked him to look up from his laptop, at that moment; I captured an expression of grace and intelligence. A brilliant man who thinks at levels most of us can only imagine, this is an insightful look at someone whose dedication to the field of economics has helped shape many of this country’s current fiscal policies.
