Likenesses consists of both photographic portraits and reflections. Judith Aronson’s subtle, enquiring lens engages the viewer in a relationship with her sitters, and illuminates in turn their own relationships with partners, family, the places in which they live and work. The conversation develops, as these writers, artists, actors and academics respond to each other in an unusual chain of recollections, original contributions and more.
The pictures, taken over the course of thirty years in England and America, bring together Aronson’s work as a photojournalist and graphic designer, vividly capturing the cultural life of the age.
The limited edition is comprised of 66 hardcover, slipcased copies signed by Judith Aronson and includes a special original archival Hahnemuhle inkjet insert with a photograph of the poet, Geoffrey Hill, and the cleric and librettist, Alice Goodman, that does not appear elsewhere in the book. Clothbound with foil stamping.
Purchase of the limited edition Likenessess entitles the owner to a fifty percent discount of one 11 x 14 archival dark room print of any photograph within – matted and signed by the author/photographer.
