The amazing thing about beauty is that it comes in so many forms. Last weekend Sam and I stopped by Erin Martin’s studio for Claiborne Swanson Frank’s book signing. In her book American Beauty she truly captures the beauty and strength in each woman she photographs. You get a glimpse into their lives, stories, and style. The collection of photos is absolutely stunning. They explore beauty, and what it means to be American, and how the two relate. There is something very inspiring, and beautiful, about a woman taking another woman’s portrait. You can buy Claiborne’s book at Erin Martin’s studio on Main St. or here.
