Michael Thompson: Acclaimed by American Photo as “one of the most important photographers working today,” the fashion and celebrity photographer Michael Thompson began his career in the late 1980s as a studio assistant to Irving Penn, and now is famed for his glamorous portraiture.


In our celebrity-besotted culture, the magazine photographer holds tremendous power to sculpt the public’s conception of a star; and Thompson has done so for such A-listers as Cate Blanchett, Sting, Mariah Carey, Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Julia Roberts, Sting and Meryl Streep.
