WET by Meg Turner
WET by Meg Turner. This much-anticipated photo book contains a series of 45 tintype portraits created between New Orleans and New York City from 2014-2022. The images convey joy, fierceness, vulnerability, and an uncompromising gaze while exploding the notion that rest and security are deserved only after a lifetime of work. Drawing deeply from traditions of fashion and advertising, Meg Turner invites her colleagues to re-imagine symbols of power, gender, sex, and wealth that seduce us into cycles of consumption and labor. The book is 12×9, softcover, perfect bound, featuring a foreword essay by Jordan Amirkhani, a hot-pink foil-stamped cover, and a selection of digitally colorized images created from original analog tintypes.
OFFICIAL BOOK RELEASE DATE IS MARCH 4th 2023
