Thinking, Fast and Slow

Today’s New York Times Sunday Book Review includes Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow in its 10 Best Books of 2011, calling Kahneman the “world’s most influential psychologist.”

I don’t have a best selling book or any where near that degree of influence but I can claim one degree of separation. I took the author photo:

Daniel Kahneman, 2002 Nobel Prize Winner, Author, "Thinking, Fast and Slow." Princeton, NJ, May, 2004.

I photographed Daniel in 2004 as part of what I call my academic trading cards – a series of portraits shot for Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School. The photo is being used for the book and its promotion.
