Bio

I blog with Debbie Notkin at “Body Impolitic” {www. laurietobyedison.com/discuss}. We talk about body image issues in the broadest sense. I live in San Francisco. I’ve published Women En Large: Images of Fat Nudes (edited and text by Debbie Notkin) and Familiar Men: A Book of Nudes (edited by Debbie Notkin, text by Debbie Notkin and Richard F. Dutcher). My photographs have been exhibited in many cities, including New York, Tokyo, Kyoto, Toronto, Boston, London, Shanghai and San Francisco. My solo exhibition “Meditations on the Body” at the National Museum of Art in Osaka featured 100 photographs. I recently completed Women of Japan, clothed portraits of women from many cultures and backgrounds. I’ve begun work on a life- sized nude portrait project. Women of Japan will be a featured exhibition of Nippon 2007, the World Science Fiction Convention.
