For seventeen years, he traveled the world as a  photojournalist for the agency Magnum and now focuses on his own projects.  Intensely personal and deeply felt, his work also reflects a lifelong  commitment to social activism, whether he is photographing the ravages of  cocaine addiction, his first wife’s struggle with breast cancer, or the  emotional aftermath of 9/11.

      2:00 am – 3:30 pm

      Lexington artist Kenn Minter will sign his latest two comic collections,Tales from the Emerald Yeti #3 and Mr. Bunny and Circle-Head.        Tales from the Emerald Yeti #3, co-written with Clarence Pruitt,continues the story of the Emerald Yeti. Still struggling to adjust to civilian life in his new furry, mechanical body, he is haunted by the horrific memories of his time in Vietnam.   Attempting to bury the past in a sea of alcohol, he draws the attention of a mysterious prostitute who has more in store for him than he could ever know. Mr. Bunny and Circle-Head first appeared in the University of Kentucky’sKentucky Kernel newspaper in the early 1990s. This book collects all the strips together for the first time. Mr. bunny and circle-head is an odd and cute comic strip featuring rudimentary drawings and bizarre humor. The strip deconstructs the 4-panel comic strip format and turns it on it’s ear. The result is an endearing wacky strip filled with strange non sequiturs and bawdy laughs.
