“Plus One is an accidentally insider view of the glamorous world of fashion. Sharon Socol is a keen-eyed documentary photographer with an uncanny knack for zeroing in on the action whether she’s shooting tortoises in the Galapagos Islands or the bold-faced names of fashion backstage in Paris. Socol was plopped into the most exclusive fashion enclaves with her trusty camera and very little idea of who was whom. The results are a delightfully agenda-free peek into a world of power, glory, pomp, and circumstance." -- Mickey Boardman, Editorial Director, PAPER Magazine
Photographer Sharon Socol is constantly bombarded by her observations about life and through photography she makes them public. Her photographs reveal both autobiographical and social commentaries. They act as a port for conversations she has with herself as well as with those who view them.
