BOOKS & BOOKS PRESS: Sharon Socol -- Plus One -- Gables
Feb 2 2013 8:00 pm
& BOOKS PRESS LAUNCH EVENT: “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
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.
