Tierney Gearon born 1963 in Atlanta, GA, is an acclaimed Los Angeles based contemporary photographer, who gained both critical and commercial recognition for her powerful and intense color photographs. She was thrust into the spotlight in 2001 when her work was featured as one of the main photographers in the famed "I Am A Camera" exhibition at Saatchi Gallery in London.

Her "Shape Series" depicts  children and animals inside colorful plexiglas shapes in various outdoor settings. The images suggest that though the subjects are in a recognizable physical location, they may exist in an alternate dimension distinguished by the space within the transparent colored walls. The project presents a fantasy-like narrative that we imagine could involve portals into space. 

Tierney Gearon has been exhibited at many prominent galleries and museums including, The Parrish Art Museum, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and Phillips de Pury & Company in London.
