“It was the most surreal thing I’ve ever done,” recalled photographer Brian Poulson.
Poulson’s book, ‘The Most Beautiful People in the World’, chronicles the life of photographer Brian O’Leary.
The book, which was published by Macmillan, features more than 150 photos of Poulsen in the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s.
“I think it’s a great book.
I’ve never been able to go back and look at a photograph before and think, ‘Wow, this is what’s happening,'” Poulsons’ wife, Julie, told CBC News.
Julie Poulssons said they had only recently begun looking at the photographs, but she believes they are one of the few works that have been preserved and available for people to see.
“Brian has been very meticulous about this.
He’s taken his photographs at a very particular time, at a specific place, at particular time of day,” Julie said.”
You know that moment when he gets up, and that moment of silence that he’s going to take, and the moment he looks out the window, and he sees all those people.
It’s something that he didn’t get a chance to do, or maybe he’s been lucky.”
Poulsen, who is survived by two children, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, died in 2014 at age 84.
His book was published in the U.S. in September 2018.
