tuesday’s girl: alyson fox.

yep, it’s a bit more about alyson fox. but this, time it’s about her photographs. you see, the woman is very talented. not in the, “oh, how annoying” way. nope — it’s in the inspiring way. Through a series of chance encounters and word of mouth (no pun intended), The only thread tying this series of women together was a willingness to wear a single shade of red lipstick. artist Alyson Fox created the book a shade of red based on her visits with and photographs of more than 100 women, most of whom had never before had their portrait taken.

A small selection of the photographic series is posted on alyson’s site, and 100 images can be found in the a single shade of red hardback book published by Chronicle Books. To view more work by alyson, please take some time on her site.

    what an interesting thing to connect such diverse women! Over the years there has been a lot of feminist discourse about lipstick … I think this is an excellent counter argument.

    Absolutely love the book (and the shade) – inspiring! How to be femnist and feminine at the same time.

    Alyson Fox is an amazing photographer. She captured her subjects in a way that they speak to me. What a cool book. Think I’ll need to order an least 100 for Christmas gifts.
    Red lipstick is such a classic color for women of all ages.
