Supergirls Speak Out: the Secret Dilemma of Overachieving Girls about the pressure on young women to be perfect, will be published by Simon and Schuster’s Touchstone/Fireside imprint in January of 2009 and my image is on the cover. Stylist extradonaire Melanie Hebron Sutton not only assembled the fashion but modeled as well along with her fabulous and photogenic assistant Adriana Barillari.

Man Walking

April 28, 2007

The Volitant Gallery in Austin, Texas is including two of my images in their group exhibit about weddings and the ritual of marriage. “Tunnel Vision: Parading Down the Aisle is a collection of photography that confronts the viewer with images that are not your obvious depiction of wedding bells and bliss, but more an observation of how the concept of matrimony has evolved through the span of time. In contrast to mass medias approach to marriage, the images collected for this exhibition are meant to challenge the very root of union in this contemporary climate.”
