Christie’s International Head of Photographs Darius Himes was formerly Fraenkel Gallery director, a co-founder of non-profit art book publisher Radius Books, and he was the was founding editor of photo-eye Booklist, an international quarterly journal devoted to photography books.
Okay, now that we have the official language and description out of the way, I can move on to giving you the real skinny:
Darius is a guy who should have an ego. He earned it. And yet, he doesn’t have one. He’s cool. He works at the highest level in his fields of photography, publishing, art, galleries, etc. He does it well, but also with a sense of humor—I can’t tell you how great this is. Darius also co-wrote How to Publish your Photography Book with Mary Virginia Swanson, one of the best books about publishing you are ever going to find.
