A friend of Richard Avedon, Laura Wilson's greatness and strength show up in her photos which depict the people as they are. Her work is an education in the type of commitment it takes to make and pursue fine art. It is irrelevant that a few of the photographs appear slightly grainy.
This is an artist in the same league as Ansel Adams, Richard Avedon, Galen Rowell, and Phil Borges.
Simply put, Laura Wilson is a thoughtful artist, whose vision and understanding are the product of a level of artistic and a respect for history that few others show.
It explores the Hutterites alternative lifestyle and shows how they very sucessfully coexists with modern American culture.
Highly recomended, many large pictures taken and reproduced with superb craftsmanship.
Cara also happens to be a British socialite because why not?
Those amazing drunken/topless photos of Cara with Michelle Rodriguez during the brief, magical time the bisexual duo were an item. Once in awhile, you find a book that outstrips others and stands on its' own.This isn't the glam photography of Annie Liebowitz, the sexually overt Herb Ritts, nor is it the intentionally odd portraiture of Diane Arbus. A French-born former Olympic swimmer and New York dwelling artist who rose to fame after becoming the first woman to work exclusively as a male model. Casey is super coy about her sexual orientation and relationships, so who knows? Laura Wilson's photographs deserve a far better presentation than they are given in this volume.
