About Kenn Duncan
Drawing from its vast collection of images and using Apple’s iBooks Author app, the New York Public Library recently published Kenn Duncan’s "Male Photography" in the iBook store. The photo ebook has a plain aesthetic and now interactivity to match--basic touch-screen functions serve as unfussy frames for more than 100 portraits, including young Christopher Walken, Ian McKellan and Harvey Fierstein. The shots of actors, dancers, the famous-for-being-famous, and the now-vaguely-remembered once graced the pages of "Dance Magazine," "Opera News," and "After Dark."
