Howard Goldblatt for Chinese Literature Today

Howard Goldblatt is one of, if not the, top english translator of modern chinese literature – or so I am told.  He also happens to be one of the more controversial.  When I was contacted by Chinese Literature Today to shoot a portrait of Howard in his Boulder home, they wanted me to capture his personality.  We came away with this shot as the winner.
