A series of dramatic, up-close portraits of women, all taken with Polaroid's remarkable 20 x 24-inch camera. These striking images are reminiscent of Tenneson's earlier work (Transformations and Illuminations) in their haunting, dreamlike qualities. However, these striking portraits of the female figure, often partially nude, draped in fabric, with unusual headdresses or objects in their arms, illuminated by eerie light, are unforgettable and a bold departure from her earlier work. A must for Tenneson's loyal fans -- the photographic, feminist, and spiritual market -- and also for a more general audience, capitalizing on her increasing visibility in the fashion field.

From New York Times–bestselling author: “A book to share with every woman in your family” honoring the wisdom and spirit of older women (Evelyn Champagne King). These women have lived decades raising children, caring for husbands, and creating nests out of which children fly to be productive members of society. Often being forced to observe more than participate in the events around them, they have unique insights that can help future generations not merely survive, but thrive. In Ageless Women, Timeless Wisdom, Dr. Lois Frankel gives center stage to these wise women. From Los Angeles, California, to Shanghai, China, women aged seventy and older share thoughts and stories that are heartwarming and hilarious; insightful and witty; philosophical and practical: “When life gives you lemons,” says Jo-Ann Mercurio, born in 1941, “add vodka.” This book, with lovely illustrations by Lisa Graves, is an important record of women’s reflections on lives well lived. It is sure to be passed from grandmother to daughter to granddaughter. “I love this book! Wisdom and wit worth remembering and sharing.” —Josh Berman, creator and executive producer, Drop Dead Diva and CSI “It would be a shame if the humor and inspiration from these wise women was lost. Dr. Lois captured their spirits . . . This is truly a good read.” —Evelyn Champagne King “It’s about time for a book like this. For too long the wisdom of older women has gone unnoticed, unappreciated, and undervalued . . . Sure to put a smile on your face and the faces of the women you share it with.” —Rita Coolidge
