Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Probably another portfolio book of new images. Current portfolio is on Ipad and a flipbook. Link to that is : http://www.joanford.com/JoanFordFlip/index.html
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Sally Mann - her early work is what intrigued me about photographing real people in real moments. Especially check out "At Twelve". She's groundbreaking.

Henri Cartier-Bresson - a master of candid photography. His book "The Decisive Moment" is a
masterpiece and inspires my style of working. "Once you miss it, it is gone forever" ...those
are the moments I love to capture every day!
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet. Forget the mini series which was good, curl up and read the book.

The Second Nine Months by Vicki Glembocki - laugh and cry with us as we forge ahead with infant in tow.
