John Pritzker is the heir to the Hyatt fortune and is himself an entrepreneur and investor—he helped establish Ticketmaster. Lisa Stone, his wife, is a public health advocate (there is a pediatric ward at the University of California Hospital named for them). The Pritzkers concentrate on photography, with a particular penchant for black-and-white works.
