Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The "intimations" are what make this set of images and text more intriguing than an ordinary how-to book of wedding pictures. A photojournalist who has published in the New York Times and Newsweek, Vernick (Picture the Girl) has put together a multicultural cross-section of weddings: straight, gay, Indian, Jewish, indecipherable-all of which hints at the complicated process of marriage. Her 70 black-and-white images tell of the happiness, unease and, in some cases, sadness involved, while facing page "What They Were Thinking" text allows the subjects to speak in their own words. "Liseli" tells of having her girlfriends slather her with makeup even though she's not a "frilly, fluffy person," and reveals a centering thought she had that day: "My mom was having little hissy fits, and that's a good thing," she says. "It made everything seem normal." "John" and his husband-to-be button their white shirts just before marrying each other ("That is what marriage is about-getting society to recognize a change in your relationship"). A sassy maid of honor smokes a cigar. An Indian daughter cries as she hugs her father goodbye before leaving his house to join her new husband's. "Daniel" expresses doubts about the ability to stay with Tanis "till death," and puts his emphasis on "till unhappiness." His thoughts speak well for the emphasis of these images: "the wedding isn't going to do what you think it is going to do for a marriage, you can't be fooled into that. There is more to a marriage. That is when the real work starts." Yet there are also the expected kissing couples, and they are unexpectedly affecting. (Apr. 16) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

    A beautiful, thoughtful book on marriage

    Unveiled is a wonderful book. It is filled with diverse images of weddings, as shot by Audrey Vernick. The photographs are accompanied by the subjects' thoughts on marriage and their motivations for having a wedding. Both the photographs and the interviews are candid and a joy to see. I recommend this book highly.

    A beautiful book

    This is a beautiful book. Vernick's photography provides a memorable portrait of each special and particular wedding story. Her interviews augment the visual and give each story a voice. I have given this book as a wedding present, as an anniversary present, and as a present for those who love photography, to the delight of every recipient. Vernick¿s respect for her subjects is always evident and she reminds us of the many faces of love and the miracle of personal commitment.

    Sensitive pictures

    Unvailed is a terrific book. The images are candid and revealing. The photographer has the ability to capture people during natural moments. Each moment freezes a lasting feeling in the form of a photograph. The writing nicely complements the pictures. This book is a perfect gift for anyone getting married or just interested in marriage. The pictures, taken together, make a revealing story about the institution of marriage and the ceremonies that surround it.
