Photographer Julian Hibbard offers an abecedary unlike any other. Drawing on his professional work shooting black & white and color photographs for everything from CD and book covers to high-end fashion, Hibbard has paired a word with one of his photographs for all twentysix letters in the alphabet. The resulting board book contains images that evoke the shadowy, sexy and voyeuristic noir aesthetic. Hibbards ability to infuse his frames with palpable emotion draws viewers back to his work, over and over again, as they consider his photographs in relation to words like forbidden, lascivious and quiescent. If The Noir A-Z is visible, people will not be able to resist it. This is not your childs board book! Hibbards photography has been exhibited in solo and group shows in the US, UK, Spain and Chile. His photographs have appeared on the covers of novels by Paul Theroux and Peter Carey, and on the covers of CDs recorded by Jill Sobule and Uncle Tupelo. Hibbard lives in New York City.
