Jackson Gallery (Atlanta) presents a solo exhibition of Tierney Gearon. Tierney Gearon was born in Atlanta in 1963. Structured around journeys with her children to and from the homes of distant and diverse relatives – predominantly across the United States – her images show lives comprised of both comfort and confusion. In her photographs as in her life, Gearon’s children form a powerful presence among the domesticity. They roam free, play-act and play up, sometimes to the camera and sometimes to the adults they find around them. Gearon was thrust into the spotlight in 2001 when her exhibition I Am A Camera at London's Saatchi Gallery came under attack for her portrayal of children. She has worked for magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, French Vogue, W Magazine, Dutch, Details, New York Times Magazine, Black Book and Marie Claire Italia. Her work has been placed into the collections of Perry Ellis, Jigsaw, and Kate Spade. Her new series, Shapes, was recently featured in New York Times Magazine.
