Christmas at Graceland -- 2012

In the words of Paul Simon, "I have reason to believe we all shall be received in Graceland."

Best wishes for Christmas and the holiday season to Southern photographers and Southern photography fans everywhere!

The Blog about Southern Fine Art Photography has been taking a break while your humble blogger has attending to other professional responsibilities.

You may learn more about them if you go to THIS WEBSITE.

We look forward to catching up on 2012 early in 2013, and forging onward.

In the meanwhile, remember that Christmas is a season, not just a day, and it is 12 days long, so its Christmas until Twelfth Night, January 5th.

Happy New Year, y'all!

Tierney Gearon in the New York Times

Atlanta-born photographer Tierney Gearon has a large portfolio of her work entitled Hollywood Heroines featured in the December 9th, 2012 issue of the New York Times Magazine.

The portfolio features images of 13 women who had one or more major roles in Hollywood movies this past year.  The list includes Quvenzhane Wallis (see above), who starred in the movie Beasts of the Southern Wild.

You can see the entire portfolio here.  This issue of the NY Times Magazine also informs us that Gearon will publish a book of her photographs with the published Steidl in the fall of 2013.

Gearon is known for her arresting, challenging, powerful compositions, exemplified in this portfolio.
