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.

BOOK INFO Hardcover, 10.5 X 8.25 In. / 164 Pages / 80 Color   ISBN 9780989798167 List Price: $45.00 Over the course of four years (2010 – 2014), Polish-Canadian photographer Gabriela Maj travelled throughout Afghanistan to collect portraits and stories from inside the country’s women’s prisons, including the most notorious penitentiary for women, Badam Bagh, located on the outskirts of Kabul. 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.Featured in: NPRThe Washington PostThe Wall Street JournalSlateThe New York TimesViceThe Huffington PostPrison Photography.orgL'Oeil de la Photographie View Details
