Tierney Gearon: Alphabet Book


Acclaimed Los AngelesĖbased 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 childrenís 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 childrenís alphabet book, this volume contains Gearonís most charming and lighthearted work to date.

Nowness writes, "G is for grumpy girls and J is for jump for joy in today's effervescent short, courtesy of Tierney Gearonís iPhone. Spliced with images gathered over the past three years for her new project, Alphabet Book, the film features Gearon's four kids and their sprightly friends playing dress-up in picturesque locales from Telluride in Colorado to the family's home in Los Angeles, creating a project Gearon describes as an 'art book for children and a childrenís book for adults.'"

Tierney Gearon: Alphabet Book

Tierney Gearon: Alphabet Book

Art book for children, or childrenís book for adults? Tierney Gearon's Alphabet Book collects 26 brightly bewitching photographs of her young children (and their friends) in evocative combinations of costumes and setótheir imaginations unconstrained. "Sometimes we would set up scenes and situations and they would sit there for days, and that was when the best shot happened," Gearney writes for Time magazine's Lightbox feature. "'Private Princess' (for the letter P, featured here) is a prime example. We set up a pink playhouse castle in Montana, the whole kingdom spread before us. I found this great vintage red dress for my niece. She wore it every day we were there. I had other fun costumes and props for the kids. All kinds of situations happened near the pink castle. But my favorite moment was the quiet portrait at the end of the day, with my niece dancing aloneóthe calm after the chaotic playtime storm. An hour earlier the whole party was happening; now it was just still." continue to blog
