The publication of For Real marks the first time that Visone’s photographs appear in a book, showcasing her incredible work that bridges the gap between commercial photography and fine art. The book consists of 61 images with a foreword by noted photographer Cig Harvey. For Real presents intimate portraits of famous musicians and Visone’s own family, blurring the lines between private life, fame and public persona. In her photographs, Visone portrays her family and friends as rock stars while presenting renowned rock musicians with the intimacy of friends and family. Which one of her subjects is a public figure and which is her sister, cousin or mother? Visone makes it difficult to tell as she treats every subject equally with respect and love. The exhibition For Real, featured at the Griffin’s gallery at The Greater Boston Stage Company in Stoneham, is culled from the book to fit our gallery space.

The book was designed by award-winning photo book designer Ashly Stohl and published by Peanut Press. The book will be available at the Griffin Museum in Winchester and at Paris’ reception.
