Tierney Gearon born 1963 in Atlanta, GA, is an acclaimed Los Angeles based contemporary photographer, who gained both critical and commercial recognition for her powerful and intense color photographs. She was thrust into the spotlight in 2001 when her work was featured as one of the main photographers in the famed "I Am A Camera" exhibition at Saatchi Gallery in London.
Her "Shape Series" depicts children and animals inside colorful plexiglas shapes in various outdoor settings. The images suggest that though the subjects are in a recognizable physical location, they may exist in an alternate dimension distinguished by the space within the transparent colored walls. The project presents a fantasy-like narrative that we imagine could involve portals into space.
Tierney Gearon has been exhibited at many prominent galleries and museums including, The Parrish Art Museum, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and Phillips de Pury & Company in London.

Paintings by Hannah Faith Yata
Hannah Yata is a Brooklyn based artist who is originally from Carrollton, Georgia. She earned a BFA in painting at the University of Georgia. Hannah explains her work by saying, “I love working with the feminine form. The female embodies so much in terms of imagery and symbolism. For things such as nature, oppression, beauty, love, emotion, sexuality there are so many layers and facets one can glean from representing the woman. As I approach the idea of femininity I bring with it my own experiences growing up as a woman and the difficulties and struggles that I have fought. The psychology of how women are portrayed in art and the media are amplified and exposed in my work. In turn, I’ve reinterpreted my experiences and how women are portrayed in today’s society to also extend to how it seems that we as individuals and as a race have objectified, commodified and exploited women, animals, and nature.(via)

The color of the Aurora depends on the altitude and the atom being struck by solar radiation (causing excitation). At higher altitudes, there is more Atomic Oxygen than Nitrogen, leading to the common color stratifications you see.
500-200 km altitude
— Atomic Oxygen — Red
— Atomic Oxygen — Greenish-Yellow
— Ionized Nitrogen — Blue/Purple
— Nitrogen (N2) — Crimson
Oxygen only emits red at higher altitudes because once it’s excited, it takes a longer time to emit red than it does green. Why is that important? Well, at lower altitudes there is more Nitrogen for the Oxygen to bump into and absorb that excitation-energy before it gets a chance to emit red light. In this case, where the collision occurs, the Oxygen will emit Green and at low enough altitudes the Nitrogen-Oxygen collisions eventually prevent Oxygen from emitting any light at all.
During stronger storms, high energy solar particles will reach lower in the atmosphere and cause the Crimson emission from Nitrogen, creating a deep-red band at the lower edge of the aurora. Other elements emit light too, like Hydrogen (Blue) or Helium (Purple) which are at higher altitudes.
