tactile atelier bookmark on W Radio and AOL News

So I got out of bed yesterday morning after a full 4 hours of sleep, pumped myself full of coffee by 8:57 am, and the phone never rang for the 9am interview with W Radio – Bogota, Colombia.  Maybe they meant next Saturday?

Tomorrow morning tactile atelier bookmark will be discussed on/for AOL news.

Fingers crossed.

tactile mind book in news in Afghanistan

Supposedly the media reports surrounding my book had made it to the front lines in Afghanistan – to the Canadian troops.

Good. Regardless of what the article(s) said, I hope it lightened up somebody(s) day.

tactile atelier bookmark heels and lingerie

Why did I take pictures of women in high-heeled shoes and  lingerie, and sculpt these images into a second project? Because it’s beautiful imagery. It’s imagery that’s real in a sighted world.  When one blind proofreader ‘saw’ the picture of the high-heeled shoes, he/she couldn’t believe that this footwear actually exists.  Same with the underwire bra.  I find it so amazing that items and images that are a part of day to day living for those of us with sight, have not yet been invented for those who cannot see.

tactile mind featured on CBS show The Doctors

tactile mind the book will be featured for a minute, maybe two, this Friday, December 3 on ‘The Doctors’. I’m stoked; I receive an end of show credit for this!  The producers from CBS whom I dealt with were great.  The book got stuck in customs (in Milwaukee?) and didn’t make it to the taping on time, so I’m curious to see how  imagery was put together.  Sure it will be amazing-

tactile mind book article in la razon es

I know all press is considered to be good press, but how does that translate when they mis-spell your name and the title of your book – especially when you’ve already spent an hour answering questions via email, and your website can be found on-line?

Nov.30th- thank you for fixing these Silvia! Much appriciated!

tactile mind book in surface magazine, China

Article about tactile mind in surface* magazine, China.

Years ago when I was photographing fashion, I was always submitting photos to surface* ( U.S. branch), with the hope they would want to commission a shoot.

This is one of my most favorite fashion/design mags of all time~
