Featuring 100 portraits of American women spanning all walks of life; Artists, mothers, models, designers, and everything in between. Ivan Shaw, Vogue's Director of Photography, talks about Swanson Frank's direction for her work with the questions "How can I capture these women in their greatest beauty and truth? Who are you? What is your Style? And Where do you feel most at home in the world?" A fellow Vogue Alumni, Genevive Bahrenburg who co-produced the book and wrote the accompanying texts, writes in the into "Each woman in this book possesses an original blend of grit, grace, glamour, and gravitas." A perfect definition of the inspiring women who will grace the pages of Swanson Frank's first book.
