Pratt Photo Professor Ellen Wallenstein has just released her self-published book of color portraits,Respecting My Elders. The book contains portraits of 30 creative elders, including designers such as George Tscherny and Eva Zeisel, born between the two world wars, who have contributed to our culture. Each has a double-page spread with their portrait and information, or “words of wisdom.”
The book was published with funds raised through a project grant at UnitedStatesArtists.com, with additional help from the Pratt Photography Department Faculty Development Fund. Wallenstein is a New York Foundation for the Arts Photography Fellow, and has had her work exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, Henry Street Settlement, and more. The book can be purchased for $25 and comes with a downloadable app and PDF included. Respecting My Elders can be previewed and ordered here.
