Miranda Penn Turin, Photographer

New Books Network 2020

Miranda Penn Turin is a freelance photographer and director who has been specializing in portraiture, fashion and beauty for over thirty years. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts and splits her time between New York and LA - she shoots all over the world and is grateful to have the best crew on the planet. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in creative writing, but her passion for photography overrode her major.

Miranda's intention when she shoots is to reveal the epic, whatever the subject. She is also working with Voices4Freedom, a humanitarian organization committed to abolishing human trafficking all over the world. Her images of the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu provide the cover art for The Book of Joy. A writer as well, she just completed her first novel.
