"Where can I find the book?" has been a constant request since the WOMEN OF A NEW TRIBE exhibition premiered in Charlotte NC in June 2002. This exhibition which has been called a "stunning" and "spectacular" collection of black and white photography is the source of a book that is destined to become a collector's item. This book is more than a homage to the physical and spiritual beauty of the black woman it is an experience. An experience in seeing in a new way and in a new light. Blue Greenberg of the Durham Herald-Sun wrote, "Taliaferro turns our ideas of stereotypical beauty upside down…". Rarely has the black woman been protrayed in such a manner, WOMEN OF A NEW TRIBE presents its subjects in way normally reserved for the great icons of feminine beauty like Garbo and Crawford. Through the use of large format black and white photography and a style that harkens back to the great glamour photography of 1930's and 1940's Hollywood the beauty of black women is lain bare. The meticulously "built" images echos the works of such photographers as George Hurrell, Sinclair Bull and Laszlo Wilinger. If the book I DREAM A WORLD celebrated black women who changed America then WOMEN OF A NEW TRIBE honors the black women we see around us everyday. It is a magnificant tribute to our mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and friends.
