the Inspiration

Tierney Gearon

ALPHABET BOOK

 

I have followed the career of acclaimed photographer Tierney Gearon ever since her 2001 debut, “I Am a Camera” exhibition in London.   Her work- always powerful, beautiful and often controversial, mainly focuses on her children as her subjects.  She has turned to her children again, producing ALPHABET BOOK a more whimsical but no less thought provoking and instantly nostalgic series of 26 photos — one for each letter of the alphabet.  An absolute must for the holidays!  Alphabet Book is available to order on Amazon.

Tallulah and I hung out in The Bowery with Tierney at her first Book Signing at Dashwood Book Store in NYC! Continue reading →
