Alphabet Book - Limited Edition
Los Angeles-based photographer Tierney Gearon (born 1963) has gained critical and commercial acclaim for her intense, colorful photographs that often feature her children as subjects. Her debut in 2001 was somewhat controversial, when two nude photographs of her sons were included in the I Am the Camera exhibition at the Saachi Gallery, London. Her most recent book takes the form of a children's alphabet book. Each letter of the alphabet is illustrated with a photograph that animates the letter--A is "Airplane Adventure," B is "Bear Boy," C becomes "Clown Car," and so on. At once an inventive photo book and an enchanting take on the form of the children's alphabet book, this volume is Gearon's most charming and lighthearted work to date. Published in a limited edition of 100 copies, it is bound in a red cloth slipcase and includes a signed and numbered print of one of her photographs.
