Ken Heyman

(1930 - 2019) American


Ken Heyman was born in New York City and attended Columbia University. While at Columbia, he took a class with the noted anthropologist Margaret Mead. This began a collaboration that lasted over twenty years. Mead invited Heyman to accompany her on a trip to Bali shortly after his graduation in 1956, and other trips soon followed. His photographs of these trips are in two books he co-authored with Mead, Family and World Enough. He has worked on many other books, including ten children’s books written by Ann Morris. Heyman has photographed for a variety of magazines, including LIFE, and for several photographic agencies, including Magnum.
His works are held in collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art.
