Portrait photography is a window to the soul. Regardless of whether the subject is famous, infamous or un-famous and no matter if it was shot in a studio or on location, a successful portrait reveals insight into the personality of a person in front of the lens.
This exhibit features the work by Sony Artisan and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Brian Smith. During his career he has told Bill Gates what to do for an entire hour, appeared on The X Factor, exhibited at the Library of Congress, dined with the President, written an Amazon Best Seller, shared cupcakes with Anne Hathaway, gotten drunk with George Clooney and married the most beautiful woman he ever laid eyes on… For the past 30 years, Brian Smith’s iconic portraits of Hollywood’s A-List and Fortune’s 50 have graced the covers and pages of hundreds of magazines including Sports Illustrated, ESPN the Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, Time, People, Forbes, Billboard, Elle and GQ.
All photographs were taken with Sony cameras and lenses.
Sony Square NYC
Sony Square NYC is a showplace for the latest in Sony entertainment and technology. Located in the company’s New York City headquarters at 25 Madison Avenue, the facility offers visitors the chance to check out select new Sony technologies and products, some of which are still in the prototype stage. Additionally, the intimate space will be used for events, such as photography classes with world-renowned photographers, exclusive movie screenings, and invitation-only performances by Sony Music artists.
While the primary goal of Sony Square NYC is to allow visitors to engage with the brand, approximately 200 of Sony’s most popular products will be available for purchase. They may not all be on display, however if visitors ask for assistance, an employee can arrange for them to make a purchase. In addition, if a visitor wants to purchase something that is not in stock, employees can arrange for that product to be purchased and shipped.
