The City of West Hollywood through its Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission in collaboration with KMP Artists Management, Inc., presented “Author, Author Michael Childers: A Photographic Retrospective of Authors, Playwrights & Screen Writers” at the West Hollywood Library, 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard, from Saturday, September 1, 2012 through Saturday, October 6, 2012.

A lecture and reception with Childers was held at the West Hollywood Library, Community Room, on Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. followed by a Q&A moderated by Gordon Baldwin, former associate curator of photography at the Getty Museum.

Childers is known for his fine art photographs of legendary movie stars, artists and other iconic luminaries that first graced the cover of Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine and After Dark Magazine. As founding photographer for that publication, Childers guided it to its place as a unique documentation of his life’s personal friends during his many years in Hollywood, a time he shared with his life partner, the late director John Schlesinger.
