Publisher's Description

Her main inspiration, when it comes to art creation, is poetry and silent meditative walks around her hometown, New York. Sullivan loves discovering hidden places of the metropolis where she has a chance to meet candidates for her mysterious and nostalgic portraits. 'In college, I got a bad grade on one of my first portrait projects because it was out of focus. I was disappointed because I really liked the image', Maura recalls. Only later, when joining the International Center of Photography in New York, she connected with her art self by becoming obsessed with making portraits of family and close friends. This helped the photographer to express her vision more clearly and create more intimate portraits.

Being her second monograph After Beauty is inspired by a poem of an artist and a poet Walter Fields, which also begins the book. According to Sullivan, it's more than just beauty that makes someone beautiful, it's about personal experiences and stories that the person carries throughout her life.
