Who is Timothy White?

Timothy White is an American photographer of celebrities, ranging from Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, Nicolas Cage, Will Smith, Queen Latifah, and Julia Roberts to Eric Clapton, Outkast, and Keith Richards. He lives and works in New York City.

After his graduation from Rhode Island School of Design in 1979, White moved to New York, where he began career as a photographer. After 40 trips to South America in four years on travel assignments, he succeeded. "I was very interested in doing music and Hollywood and moving into lots of younger magazines like Guitar and little pop magazines. I marched some of my South American work to Rolling Stone and won an assignment to do Yoko Ono," White says.

White has since contributed to the covers of magazines such as Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and Playboy, as well as hundreds of movie posters for Hollywood’s studios, including Sony, Paramount and Universal. His work has also been seen on album covers for musicians such as Bruce Springsteen, Aretha Franklin, and Jon Bon Jovi.
