Sexy or modest, sometimes chosen with a theme in mind, and, occasionally outlandish, wedding shoes are the exclamation point in a well-crafted statement of style and individuality. Ron 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, Ron has photographed many of the museum’s historical collections. Now, in A Beautiful Step Forward: Wedding Shoe Portraits, he explores the significance of wedding shoes in contemporary culture |
