Annali Juarez - Tierney Gearon (10)

Tierney Gearon is a self-taught photographer who was born in Atlanta. She was a fashion model which then turned into a photographer. In her 2008 series Explosure not only examines her life through double exposed images, but also plays  with themes of controversy, change, and self exploration. She selected the 40 images out of the 500 rolls of film that make up “Explosure,” which was shown in major galleries in London and Beverly Hills in 2009. she takes the the classic “mistake” of a double exposure to merge two fairly benign images into something much more provocative.
