Recent pages from Walter Iooss’ diaries

As you may know, Walter Iooss keeps a diary. Diaries, actually. He fills them with newspaper clippings, cutout photos, his own images, handwritten text, and mixed-media embellishments of his own design. They’re part travel journal, part photo book, and totally Walter. Here’s a look at three spreads he recently sent me from November 2011, when he was photographing Kate Upton in Australia for Sports Illustrated‘s 2012 Swimsuit Issue, and one from an “insane” Express shoot he did amid the hubbub of Times Square. 

Below the images is a video piece on Walter and one of his favorite diaries from 2002, produced by the Newseum in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with the exhibition “Athlete: The Sports Illustrated Photography of Walter Iooss.”
