Kyne photographs as a means understanding so-called reality, wondering what lies outside of the environment that she can detect with her own limited human biology. Ultimately, Kyne produces a photography of nature that does not rely on the nature genre, or even on the subject matter of nature for engagement or visual enjoyment, but instead examines the possibilities in the not-sensed and the imagined. A Crack In The World contains fresh and elegant, yet layered and technically complex photographs that inspire empathy for all beings, and the planet that sustains them. An accompanying essay by Susan Griffin examines the artistic and theoretical implications of this deceptively simple body of work.Barbara Kyne is an artist based in Oakland, California. Her work has been shown at SF Camerawork, Photo Center NW, the Trition Museum of Art, The Kala Institute, and the Bedford Gallery, and is featured in many contemporary photography books and publications.

They are images of loss and survival, fragments and lives, architecture and skin, surfaces and invisible things, like radiation. Exposure is at the core of Slavik's project: exposure to and exposures made from radiation, to the sun, to light, to history, and exposures made from radiation, the sun, light, and history, including historical artifacts from the Peace Memorial Museum’s collection. After Hiroshima engages ethical seeing, visually registers warfare, and addresses the irreconcilable paradox of making barbarism visible as witness, artist, and as viewer.Featured in San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, Foam and New York Times, and more!Essay by James Elkins View Details

Maj’s project is the largest record documenting the experiences of incarcerated women in Afghanistan produced to date. Her hauntingly beautiful, compassionate photographs, along with the accompanying personal stories of the inmates, are gathered together in her first monograph. The majority of the prisoners Maj documented were incarcerated for what are known in Afghanistan as “moral crimes,” accused of running away from forced marriages, being sold into prostitution, domestic slavery, physical violence generally conducted by their husbands, and rape and involuntary pregnancy. Being an independent female photographer enabled Maj to gain extraordinary access to her subjects with whom she established rapport and trust, visiting with many of the incarcerated women featured in the book over the course of multiple visits. Together, the voices in Almond Garden are a testimony to the human rights abuses many Afghan women continue to endure, and a call to action for the much-needed support in the battle for women’s rights in Afghanistan from the international community. Prison Photography.orgL'Oeil de la Photographie View Details

This small town houses the world's wealthiest company, which also owns the world's largest crude oil reserves. In 2018, as part of Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 plan, the public sale of a percentage of the company is expected to be the biggest IPO in history, valued at around $2 trillion. Malik shares the surprising warmth, familiarity, and timelessness of this 22-and-a-half square-mile place that so many Aramcons call home. Malik's photographs provoke conversation about the perception of and preconceived ideas about a home that is neither fully Saudi nor fully American -- a home unlike any other.Ayesha Malik divides her time between New York City and Saudi Arabia working on self-directed photo projects.
