LaNola Kathleen Stone, an award-winning photographer and art director in New York City, tells stories (both her own and others) with images. She specializes in shooting children's fashion and interiors, though recently she's received accolades for her images of dogs/pets.
She prefaces her essay with the following: “Measuring Up is an editorial story I created to fulfill an assignment to shoot amusement park Coney Island. The concept was to juxtapose the refinement of the mother's outfit with the simplicity of the child. Issues explored were based on the relationships observed while visiting the park; both mother and child trying to measure up to each others' expectations, both often coming up short.”
