Temple of Art: Allan Amato


Allan Amato’s Temple of Art project invited dozens of professional artists to customize photographic portraits of themselves. This book showcases the process through presentation of the personality-centric back and white photos by Allan Amoto juxtaposed with the individual artists’ reworking of each photo into a personal statement about who they are. Mini essays about each participant accompany the art.

“Since early 2012 I have been photographing fine artists and inviting them to interpret those portraits through their particular medium. An artist’s work can act as both bridge and barrier; at once deeply personal and highly distorted; the lens through which we present our perception of the world, and the world that in turn interprets us.” – Allan Amato
