This summer, for the first time in more than 15 years, all of the images from Polly Borland's book The Babies, a photographic journey into the world of adult babies, will be on display. The show, which opens at Mier Gallery on July 22 and runs through Aug. 19, marks Borland's first solo show in Los Angeles, where the photographer now lives and works.

“I think it's gutsy for Nino Mier to show this work,” Borland says. “I don't know what it is about this work but people find it creepy.” [Click here for the full story …]
