Arnold Schwarzenegger: A Portrait (1974)

Thirty-five years ago Arnold Schwarzenegger was a recent Austrian immigrant to the U.S., and a world champion in a sport — bodybuilding — that virtually guaranteed him anonymity. Yet through his friendship in the 1970’s with George Butler, and Butler’s book and film, Pumping Iron, Arnold quickly became a household name. Since then, he became the highest paid movie star in the world and Governor of California.

Arnold Schwarzenegger: A Portrait splendidly illustrates and tells the story of Arnold’s rapid emergence from obscurity. In 100 stunning photographs, many previously unpublished, accompanied by never before disclosed anecdotes — about Arnold and his family in Austria and the untold beginnings of his emerging career — Butler reveals the human side of this living legend. Arnold Schwarzenegger: A Portrait is a lavish tribute to a larger than life celebrity figure.

John Kerry: a portrait (2004)

For more than thirty years, photographer and filmmaker George Butler has documented the public and private life of his friend John Kerry. Asked to handle press for Kerry’s first political campaign — a run for Congress in 1969 — Butler began taking pictures to promote the young candidate. The two men have stayed close ever since, and Butler has continued to photograph the man he always believed could one day be President.

When Kerry, a decorated war hero, mesmerized the nation with his speech before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1971, Butler was there to record it. Butler and his Leica camera also captured Kerry’s leadership role as a member of Vietnam Veterans Against the War and as an active participant in the peace movement; his key political campaigns of the seventies, eighties and nineties; quiet moments with his family on Cape Cod and the nearby islands; and scenes from his Presidential campaign.

John Kerry: A Portrait is a unique record of a life as colorful and interesting as that of any Presidential candidate in recent memory.
