Books: Illusions of the Body by Gracie Hagen
Our beloved Chicago-based photographer Gracie Hagen released an amazing new book featuring her photography series titled Illusions of the Body.
Illusions of the Body is "...made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have" explains Gracie Hagen.
The book (Full Color, 100 pages, Bound Softcover, Matte Cover Finish, 8.5”x11”) includes 17 never before released images and all advance purchases will be numbered and signed by the artist (Limited Edition Signed Pre-Order $50 unsigned post release $60 Books will be shipped May 1st).
You can buy the book directly @ Gracie Hagen website or meet the artist at the book Launch Party (April 26th, 2014 at 8pm -11pm) Forte Framing and Gallery in Chicago.
Come pick up a copy and get it signed by the artist!
