“The Authors” is an ongoing series of portraits of writers who Bonnie admires. In these portraits, realistic depictions of the authors are supplemented by collage elements that give insight into the subjects’ personalities and the personalities of the characters they create. Other components of the picture represent the settings in which they worked.
