Ten copies of the limited edition books, donated by Sony, signed by both Barker and Swift, will be auctioned off on eBay, with all proceeds benefitting Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

ABOUT THE BOOK: When asked about the shoot, Barker said, "Photographing one of the most famous pop icons of our time could have been a challenge, but working with Taylor was like a dream sequence. In one day, we managed to shoot an entire book's worth of images and multiple short films! You daren't put your camera down for a moment for even when she's exiting the stage it's iconic..."
