A Photographers Perspective: by Linda Solomon

Linda Solomon, a nationally recognized, award winning photojournalist and member of the exclusive and prestigious Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame, has divided her career between capturing the most famous personalities of our time and teaching others to express themselves through photography.

Many of the celebrities have pushed the boundaries of Fashion and Accessory Design. This strategic marketing move has made them memorable for generations.

Miniature Collection

Some of the earliest miniatures were created by the Egyptians 5,000 years ago. They made miniature replicas of boats, animals, furnishings, and even servants. These hand-crafted miniatures were placed in tombs within the pyramids. (Sort of makes you rethink the idea of "you can't take it with you," right?)
