A Beautiful Step Forward: Wedding Shoe Portraits

Ron Wood


Sexy or modest, sometimes themed, and occasionally outlandish, wedding shoes are the exclamation point in a well-crafted statement of style and individuality. Wood’s portraits of wedding shoes are about love and friendship, old customs and new ones, and, of course, beauty. As a photographer for The Bata Shoe Museum, he has photographed many of the museum’s historical collections. Now, in A Beautiful Step Forward, he explores the significance of wedding shoes in the present.
