About

American Icons is an amalgamation of more than four decades of work from the iconic large and medium-format digital photographer, Terry Heffernan. His collection serves as a visual exploration of what it means to be an American, including beautiful quotes by legends and luminaries that accompany Heffernan's shots. 

Heffernan has photographed collections in the Peabody Museum, National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Smithsonian's American History Museum. "American Icons" collects the works that Heffernan has produced for these world-renowned institutions. 

Terry Heffernan's interests focus on the American spirit. Heffernan has spent his entire career propelling Americana values and traditions through photography and film. From the Civil War to baseball, America’s favorite pastime, Heffernan is passionate about presenting these subjects in the larger than life medium that continues to be his modus operandi.

Terry Heffernan is a photographer who splits his time between San Francisco and rural Montana. He has produced award-winning photographs for national ad campaigns, corporate annual reports, and prestigious publications. Along with his interpretative photographs of collections in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, the Peabody Museum, and the American Museum of Fly Fishing, Heffernan continues to build upon his ongoing museum collections series.

Kit Hinrichs, renowned graphic designer, has served as the principal of design offices in New York and San Francisco, including spending 23 years as a partner of Pentagram before opening Studio Hinrichs in 2009. His award-winning design experience includes brand development, packaging, environmental graphics, editorial and exhibition design. In addition, he is a noted collector of American flag artifacts and founder of the Stars & Stripes Foundation.

Delphine Hirasuna, Editor of the much acclaimed @Issue: Journal of Business and Design,  has won numerous national and international rewards for corporate and design-related writing. With Kit, she co-authored the books TypeWise and Long May She Wave, and wrote The Art of Gaman on the arts and crafts made in WWII Japanese American interment camps. The Art of Gaman was turned into an exhibition shown in 15 museums, including the Smithsonian Renwick Gallery.

Risks and challenges

There are always inherent risks and challenges to publishing a photo book, including the possibility of delays, but as Graphis has more than 70 years of publishing experience, we are confident that we will meet the deadlines we have set forth.
