Sale for the Holidays – Women En Large and Familiar Men

Debbie and Laurie say:

“Sublime black-and-white essays on the beauty of the human body.”
–Mary Gallant, Asahi Evening News, Tokyo

This seems like a good year to do something nice, so Deb and I decided to do our first book sale in years.

We’re offering each of them for $15 with free shipping. They are usually $25 plus shipping.

Payment is through PayPal – let us know if you’d like them signed or personalized. If Paypal doesn’t work for you, let us know that and we’ll figure out something else.

Early best wishes for the holidays.

The Allure Of The Collection: Osaka Museum Exhibition

Laurie says:

The Allure of the Collection, the celebratory 35th Anniversary exhibition of the National Museum of Art in Osaka opens today .  I’m thrilled that I have six photographs in the exhibition (two from Women En Large and four from Familiar Men). And I very much appreciate the care they took with the accompanying text.


The exhibition is in two parts and presents some 350 works by approximately 150 artists from the museum’s collection of over 6,300 items. The first part will introduce a wide range of contemporary art from the 20th and 21st century by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Giorgio Morandi, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, Yayoi Kusama, and Yoshitomo Nara.

The second part, the photography exhibition that includes my work, is contemporary photographs chosen from works that the museum has acquired since the mid-’90s. It consists of a diverse selection of works from both Japan and abroad. The exhibition catalogue includes my photograph of Bob Guter.


I received my invitation to the opening a couple of weeks ago and I wish I could be there.  I was Skyping with my friend Rebecca Jennison in Kyoto today.  She will be taking a group of her students from Kyoto Seika University to the exhibition and I hope I’ll get pictures. (if they’re good enough I’ll post them.)

Having my work in the museum twice in the last few months is wonderful.
