My Mother's Clothes

I discovered this gem of a tribute to a woman with extraordinary taste in clothes written by her daughter who takes exquisite photographs.

Jeannette Montgomery Baron is an artist a photographer who documents her mother's life through her clothing and in turn helps revive her mother's memory during the course of Alzheimer's disease.

Baron's use of pattern in the back drops of her mother's belongings is beautifully staged. The clothing jumps off the page leaving you wanting to know more about the woman who wore them and want to see them. Some of the fashions are to die for.

Here's an example. Of course I have stars and stripes on my mind.
