"LIFE" was the fourth photography book that I had published. "LIFE" is an Editorial Photography Book and is currently in a photography book contest.
The prison photo's were all shot at Alcatraz, and the book is filled with quotes from some of the worlds most infamous criminals.
This project began with one question: "What is the most important life lesson that you have learned?" However, the project quickly took on a life of it's own, and I just went along for the ride.
The most frequent comment that I hear from people that have purchased LIFE is this: "The book really made me think!" To know that perhaps I played a small part in opening a few eyes regarding the importance of teaching the next generation life's most important lessons is more rewarding than I ever imagined!
I will leave you with one quote from the book that still sends shivers down my spine:
"We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow."
~ Ted Bundy


  1. Very interesting Tina, like how you've come out of the box of pleasantries,
    Life is not just pretty & fun, it's hardcore

  2. Hi Lolie ~
    You're right... it is! I think it's a good thing to show people the "other side" every once in a while. Sometimes we need all need to open our eyes and see what's going on!
    People like Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, and Susan Smith are everywhere!

  3. It is a powerful book and I am fortunate to own a copy.

  5. Oh! Alcatraz you "Beautify" island of the pelican. I long for your return, yet never again wish to set foot. Remembering you the way you were. I see it not a rock, or prison of the mind as others said. Remembering yet another splendid time, of memories locked up in my head.

  6. Thank you Gerry!
    I'm so happy you are enjoying the book!

  7. Hello John!
    You know Alcatraz better than most! I'm so happy to see you here on the blog!
    Take care ~
