Tierney Gearon (Nicole's Pick)
Tierney Gearon is a unintentionally controversial photographer. Much like Sally Mann (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sally_Mann) , she has been accused of child pornography and exploitation of her kids. Tierney is a true artist in every sense of the word. This is a woman who regardless of recognition she would be making pictures of her family. Photography is her way to understand things in order to process them. Tierney's website it currently under construction but if you go to this link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tierney_Gearon) you can see more of her pictures and read articles of people who feel offended by her work.
The below works are photographs of Sally Mann.
