‘Beautiful Women of North Dakota’ honored for photos

“Beautiful Women of North Dakota,” the 2009 book that collected the images and personal stories of inspiring women around the state has won an award for its photography.

The book’s images earned the winning selection for people photography in the Best Book Awards 2010, which are presented annually by the book review site www.usabooknews.com.

Compiled by the husband and wife team of photographer Billy Black and writer Chris Linnares, “Beautiful Women of North Dakota” provided life snapshots of women whose beauty transcended the physical emphasis focused on by mainstream culture.

A preview of the “Beautiful Women” film will be screened Wednesday during a Yunker Farm birthday celebration at the Fargo Theatre. The event, which is billed as an empowering lunch and fashion show, runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will also feature Linnares as a guest speaker. The event costs $30. Call (701) 232-6102 for details.
