Publisher's Description

The new book by Tierney Gearon entitled 'Alphabet 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 enchanting take on the children’s alphabet book, this volume is Gearon’s most charming and lighthearted work to date.

After an early career as a model and commercial photographer, Gearon began to train 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 children were included, leading to outcry in the conservative press. Since her controversial debut, Gearon has been pushing the envelope of contemporary photography. Tierney Gearon has been exhibited at many prominent galleries and museums including, Gagosian Gallery, Yossi Milo, Ace Gallery, The Parrish Art Museum, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and Phillips de Pury & company in London. Her most recent project, a 24 page feature of 13 Oscar Award winning woman titled “Hollywood Heroines”, was featured in the New York Times magazine.
