SPIRIT IN FORM PHOTOGRAPHY BOOK
The Human Form In Nature and Other Places
88 pages hardcover. $38.00
A collection of images and poetry from the early work of photographer Gail Russell of Taos, New Mexico.
“From the beginning of time, I often imagined that most artists and later photographers, had somewhere, a stash of nudes. The exposed human form is too provocative and lyrical not to address visually in all its uncovered power and vulnerability. When I as a young person studying art, I was perplexed about the overwhelming quantity of female nudes versus males.
This both puzzled me and incited me at once, so when I first dove into photography I embarked on a project of nudes that naturally included males as well as females. I enlisted friends, lovers, students anyone that would be willing to be in my photographs.”
Spirit in Form includes 52 previously unpublished black and white, sepia toned and hand-colored images. spanning more than three decades, from 1968 to 2002. The photographs are of male and female nudes with a signature of sensual poems appearing in the center of the book.
Winner of the Eric Hoffer Book Award
Designed in a compact 8.5″ x 8.5” hard cover volume, this perfect “end table book” includes notes and experiences of the photographer.
This is a collector’s gem; the first in a series of volumes of the artist’s life with a camera.
GAIL RUSSEL’S GREETING CARD SHOP
Beautiful Greeting Cards
Dance Of Peace
‘In The Spirit’ Greeting Card Set
Greeting Cards have made a comeback, given these days of social distancing. Sending a card to someone through the mail is now more-than-ever a wonderful way to reach out to family, friends and loved ones with a personal touch.
Letting them know you care and are thinking about them.
Many people are making a point of ordering from individual creators rather than big companies to support the work of small businesses and local talent. This trend of buying from independent artists shares original designs and creativity.
I’ve always wanted to wear the beauty of a Gail Russell photograph. But how, exactly, does one wear a picture? I didn’t want to place my prints on a garment that was small, like a hat, or irregular in shape, like a shirt or pants, and so on. Shawls on the other hand? They were like a large canvas, perfect.
Kangaroo Pocket Scarves
My Southwestern style pocket scarves is where the Down Under meets the Southwest. Down Under because of the name, Kangaroo scarves. And Southwest because of their Yellowstone-inspired design, with a touch of the classic Pendleton blanket for extra comfort, style and warmth.
If you go to any Native American pow wow, almost all of the women there will be wearing “leggins,” as they’re called traditionally, with their dresses. Like all gaiters, they’re more than a fashion accessory. They were designed for leg protection from Mother Nature, offering the perfect balance of style and substance.
Whenever I wear my gators at least 1 woman asks me ‘where did you get that? It’s so cute”! and I give them a card or say your website….Beauty and attention to detail are the foundation of this business I love to support!
Velvet sally gators are like having a couple of extra boots in your closet! They can dress up a pair of boots that you currently have and you can go from office shoes to dancing boots in an instant!
Throw them on top of a pair leggings with a tunic and you have a fabulous dinner date look! Sexy without over doing it .. I want one in every color!
“I Just love my new Gazelle Shawl! Deep, rich color and beautifully soft texture makes me never want to take it off!!!”
“Who would have thought velvet could be so versatile?
I love the black velvet gators because I’m able to wear them with most of my wardrobe. For example I wear them while teaching yoga and just last week I wore them out with my dress to impress New Years Eve outfit!”
“I love my Sally Gators because they are not only warm and beautiful on my legs, I am convinced that they are supportive and healing.
I wear my wide selection of Sally Gators year-round with my tights. I feel a bit naked without them.
