Description

Acclaimed Los Angeles-based photographer Tierney Gearon (born 1963) has gained both critical and commercial recognition for her intense and colorful photographs, which have often taken her children as their subject. After an early career as a model and commercial photographer, Gearon began to train her camera on her own family. She was thrust into the spotlight in 2001, when two nude portraits of her sons were included in the acclaimed I Am a Camera exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London, leading to outcry in the conservative press. Since her controversial debut, Gearon has been pushing the envelope of contemporary photography. Her new book takes the form of a children's alphabet book. Each letter of the alphabet is illustrated with a photograph by Gearon that animates the letter: A is "Airplane Adventure," B is "Bear Boy," C becomes "Clown Car," etc. At once an inventive photo book and an enchanting take on the children's alphabet book, this volume contains Gearon's most charming and lighthearted work to date.
