"In Search of Fertility" book signing October 22nd at Florey's!

Florey's Book Co. welcomes local photographer Tanya Lin Jaffe as she signs copies of her new photography collection, "In Search of Fertility".

***Saturday, October 22nd, 4-6pm***

Tanya Lin Jaffe is a Pacifica resident and Sanchez Art Center Studio Artist.

About the book:

In Search of Fertility is a visual roadmap of the places I’ve been on the journey to motherhood. I never wanted children. Ever. Even as a little girl I refused to play with dolls. Three years ago that changed. A little too late. So far.

Using eggs, the essence of fertility, and other props as my subjects, I photograph their stories. Boiling, burning, rotting, playing, dancing and singing. Seeking to give birth to something that will last beyond them. Like a mad scientist seeking a reaction, I set into motion events and photograph the scene and ensuing action as it unfolds, acting as both instigator and scribe.
