Barbara Kyne is an American artist who divides her time between Oakland and
Mariposa, California. As an artist she asks fundamental questions about reality such
as, who are we, and how are we related to the cosmos? Underlying themes in her work
are intelligence and nature, and a philosophy that collapses the dualism between
science and spirituality. She believes photography, particularly abstract photography,
facilitates abstract thought.

One of photographer Deborah Feingold's earliest darkrooms was actually a prison
cell. After graduating from Emerson College in the early 1970's, she was awarded a
grant to teach photography to troubled youth in a Boston prison, affirming her belief in
the power of the camera as a tool for self-expression and communication and laying
the groundwork for a decades-long career photographing the most prominent names
in American culture.
Feingold moved to New York City in 1976, where her relationship with a jazz musician
inspired her to embrace a spirit of improvisation in her photography and led to her first
major assignment: shooting jazz icon Chet Baker for the Artist House record label.
Her work with Baker and others on the label caught the attention of Musician magazine,
who hired Feingold as their New York liaison. Turning her small apartment into a
makeshift studio (this time her shower stall served as the dark room) and freewheeling
it on the unpredictable streets of New York, Feingold captured indelible images of
some of the most legendary names in music, from B.B. King and James Brown to

Feingold's unique ability to put her subjects almost immediately at ease engendered the kind of rare moments of honesty
and intimacy that became the hallmark of her work, and over the ensuing decades, her photographs would appear in
Rolling Stone, Time, Newsweek and The New York Times among others, along with countless album and book covers. The
portraits in her catalog read like a who's who of cultural icons: President Barack Obama, Mick Jagger, Bill Gates, Tom
Wolfe, Prince, Johnny Depp, George Carlin, and many more.
Her new book, Music, collects some of the most dazzling moments from her sessions with the artists whose work has
defined the last 40 years in popular (and stridently unpopular) music, and asserts Feingold as a singular talent with the
ability to distill their artistry and humanity down into a single frame.

Born in Atlanta, GA, Tierney Gearon is an acclaimed Los Angeles based contemporary
photographer, who has gained both critical and commercial recognition for her powerful
and intense colorful photographs. Praise for her powerful and haunting images did not
come to art through traditional means. Her life goal was always to be a mother. After
being a model and commercial photographer for years, her marriage dissolved. She
then turned her camera on her family. Through those images she acquired on different
family trips around the world she was discovered by Charles Saatchi. She was thrust
into the spot light in 2001 when her work was featured as one of the main
photographers in the famed “I Am A Camera” exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in
London. Her work became an overnight sensation when images of he children came
under public scrutiny. Since her controversial debut, Gearon has been pushing the
envelope of contemporary photography. “The Mother Project” and “Daddy, Where are
you” both give the viewer an intimate look into Tierney’s relationship with her mentally
ill mother, not only capturing the raw intensity but also celebrates her free spirit. In
2009, Gearon pushed her photography to a new zenith, double exposing film inside of
the camera to produce groundbreaking chance narratives in her work titled “EXPLOSURE”. Tierney 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. She will be
