Chiefly pictorial. Publisher's description: Acclaimed Los Angeles-based photographer Tierney Gearon (born 1963) has gained both critical and commercial recognition for her powerful, 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 turn her camera on her own family, and was thrust into the spotlight in 2001 when she was featured in the acclaimed I Am a Camera exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London, in which two nude portraits of her sons were included, 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 photobook and enchanting take on the children's alphabet book, this volume is Gearon's most charming and lighthearted work to date.
