Early life

John Anthony Cowan was born on 22 April 1929 at Gillingham, Kent, the only child of Irving Cowan and his wife, Elizabeth Edith Cowan (née Cobley).[2]

Career

Cowan was known for his dynamic photographic style which reflected the energetic atmosphere of 1960s Swinging London. The Victoria and Albert Museum say, "John Cowan ... epitomised the playful, graphically dynamic style of commercial photography practised in London during the period. His partnership with model and photographer Jill Kennington sparked an exciting period of high-octane image-making for numerous magazines."[3] Among the magazines and newspapers Cowan worked for were Vogue, Queen, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, The Observer, the Sunday Times, the Daily Express and the Sunday Express, the Daily Mail, and the Daily Mirror.[2]

Cowan's London studio was one of the main sets for Michelangelo Antonioni's 1966 film Blow-Up[4] and Cowan was one of the photographers, with David Bailey, Terence Donovan and others, who were used to create the composite character of Thomas in the film.[4] Cowan's energy and unconventional approach inspired the memorable scene in Blow-Up where David Hemmings as Thomas kneels over Veruschka as he photographs her. In a 2011 interview for Vanity Fair, Kennington commented "The David Hemmings–and-Veruschka scene for Blow-Up was pure Cowan. Antonioni must have seen him working—I never saw anyone else take pictures quite that way. The shooting on the floor downwards, completely fluid, unhindered by tripods, etc., was typical Cowan."[4] Kennington recalled the physical nature of her shoots with Cowan, saying "he clambered anywhere, including onto his Land Rover roof, to achieve a great angle. Luckily, I was born a mountain goat, and many photographic adventures involved jumping or hanging off buildings." According to the Daily Telegraph, the Hemmings–and-Veruschka scene "came to symbolise the film".[5]

Personal life

Cowan was married twice. His first wife was a nurse, Joyce Gordon (b. 1929). They married in June 1950 at Bearstead, Kent, and their daughter Nicola was born on 13 July 1954. They divorced in 1954.[2] On 19 September 1959, Cowan married his second wife, Sydney Smith (b. 1934), and they separated in February 1963 and divorced on 4 July 1967. They had three daughters: Carolyn (born 7 February 1960, therapist, fashion designer and photographer), Atalanta (born 20 June 1962, who married Philip Knatchbull, son of John, Baron Brabourne, and his wife Patricia, Countess Mountbatten of Burma) and Justine (born 31 July 1963).[2]

On 26 September 1979, he died of cancer in East Hagbourne, Oxfordshire.[2]

Desert Father: A Journey in the Wilderness with Saint Anthony
Desert Father: A Journey in the Wilderness with Saint Anthony
The spiritual exploits of Saint Anthony the Great—the prototype of the Christian "Desert Father"—have been immortalized in stories and art since the fourth century. Here is the stunning account of a modern seeker's quest to get beneath the legends that surround Anthony and to determine whether his extreme way of life has something to offer people in today's world. James Cowan's quest takes him to Egypt, to the monastery that still exists near the site of Anthony's hermitage, where he meets the monk who becomes his guide and mentor on the journey. He comes to regard Anthony and the colorful men and women who shared his lifestyle in the fourth through seventh centuries with affection and awe—their departure to the desert a flight from the status quo of the newly Christian empire in order to preserve the radical path to liberation they saw in Christian teaching. Our modern efforts toward liberation may look different from theirs, he concludes, but the ultimate goal is no different, and Anthony remains a luminous model for anyone who passionately seeks to know God.

Personal Vision: Photographs
Personal Vision: Photographs
Master American photographer Adger Cowan's predominantly black-and-white photography is collected in Personal Vision: Photographs, his monograph of original images taken over the past forty years. Cowans is one of the great unrecognized photographic luminaries of our time, and this magnificent book is a fitting and long-awaited tribute to his immense talent. Personal Vision follows Cowans's photographic evolution from Navy photographer to apprentice to the great Gordon Parks to history-shaping documenter of 1960s Harlem to a high-profile Hollywood portrait photographer with a larger-than-life clientele list, including Al Pacino, Jane Fonda, Katherine Hepburn, and Mick Jagger. Cowan's images embody 1960s documentary style, street journalism, portraiture and self-portrayals, still-lifes, and experimental work. Personal Vision captures the evolution and expansive talent of a single photographer who had access to worlds as diverse as Harlem street life and high-fashion models, and who continues to photograph today with gusto and imagination, creating one of the major archives of a living American photographer, seen here for the first time in an expansive collection.

Touched by God
Touched by God is an eclectic collection of soul-searching and motivational poems inspired by the Holy Spirit. It has several chapters, each with its compilation of germane poems to uplift, challenge, and bless. Poems on prayer prepare the way, allowing faith to usher in the promise of God’s Word timely fulfilled. You will become cognizant of the love of God as it emanates from the very pages.

In a world of increasing perplexities, this book offers hope to a people who will direct their minds to be in touch with God. The rallying call to all in such times is epitomized in the scripture Psalm 94:14, “For the Lord will not cast off His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance.” Touched by God is a light that shines in a gloomy world spiraling out of control. It enables man to know that there is a blessed hope available. The only real hope man can embrace is through contact with the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God, who alone knows the heart of man and the issues that spring forth. There is no better place to be than to be drawing ever, being in touch with him. The words contained in the book come with no bias to those who are already in touch with God or to those yet to know God the creator. The spirit-filled messages will enrich the lives of all—man’s soul no longer disquieted, the peace of God assuming control. Read with an open mind and allow yourself to be touched by God.

The Louisiana Field Guide: Understanding Life in the Pelican State
The Louisiana Field Guide: Understanding Life in the Pelican State
In Louisiana, every bite of food and each turn of phrase is an expression of cultural literacy. Correctly pronouncing "Tchoupitoulas" or "Atchafalaya," knowing the difference between the first Governor Long and the second one, being able to spot the artwork of Caroline Durieux, and honoring the distinction between a Creole and a Cajun roux serve not just as markers of familiarity; they represent acts of preservation. The Louisiana Field Guide: Understanding Life in the Pelican State expands on this everyday communion of history, delving into the cultural patchwork that makes the Gumbo State both thoroughly American and absolutely singular.An authoritative lineup of contributors reintroduces Louisiana through the lenses of environment, geography, history, politics, religion, culture, language, sports, literature, film, music, architecture, food, and art. Whether describing the archi-tectural details of the Ursuline Convent in the French Quarter or sharing the family history of Bourgeois' Meat Market just outside of Thibodaux, the essays in The Louisiana Field Guide present a fresh and expansive look at the enchanting and perplexing Pelican State.At once an accessible primer and a rich omnibus, this volume explores the well-known destinations and far-flung corners of Louisiana, from Cameron Parish to Congo Square, offering an enlightening companion guide for visitors and a trust-worthy reference for residents.
