"My Photo Album is a journey through the life of British artist Tracey Emin using photographs from her personal collection. Edited from the albums she has kept from an early age, this visual autobiography contains some amazing images: Tracey sharing a pram as a baby with her twin Paul, her bus-pass photo aged 14, a 'glamour' shoot as a semi-naked art student, her early successes as an artist, through to hanging out with superstars such as David Bowie and Ronnie Wood. Perhaps more than any other artist working today, Tracey Emin's work is grounded in the personal experiences and events of her life. In these poignant photographs we can examine this crossover: the moments that have shaped her, and influenced her work: from her family life to the pivotal Young British Artist movement of the 1990s. The design of the book resembles a photo album, with Tracey's handwritten captions and notes accompanying the photographs"--Amazon.com, viewed July 1, 2013.
