Our guest is Lynn Gilbert, a massive contributor to 20th-century portrait photography — her photos of sculptor Louise Nevelson became the face of the Venice Biennale in 2022 — whose 1981 book of photos and essays, ‘Particular Passions,’ became a significant document of second-wave feminism. Lynn, with virtually no professional portfolio at the time, somehow brought together luminaries and unknowns to create her monumental book, cataloging some of the most important well-known — and unknown — persons of the time and movement. Her subjects included Gloria Steinem, Margaret Mead, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Julia Child, Lillian Hellman, Barbara Walters, and more. A beautiful and generous figure in my own small story, it is my sincere pleasure to bring part one of this wide-ranging conversation with Lynn to you this Tuesday, a deep look at a life lived behind the lens.
