Stephen King photographed by Frank Van Riper at the senior little league field in Bangor, Maine, that he and his wife Tabitha built for the city.

Proper black and white tonal control to back up a genuinely interesting portrait just makes my heart sing. I’m so glad the photographer made the most of this opportunity and didn’t just have King stand with his arms folded or one of the myriad of other arbitrary author poses I see too often.
