Are there people like her where she’s going? Is she headed to her tribe? I think so. Everyone finds their tribe in New York – that’s why people come here.”"-The Guardian, December 3, 2022.

But as you drill down into them, you start to see that they are also documents of loss." - The Washington Post, December 9, 2020"The images document abandoned industrial and residential sites, as well as the toxic side effects of urban growth. They shine a light on the consequences of past planning decisions, institutional racism, environmental disregard, and America’s unchecked manifest destiny." - Photobook JournalAlso featured in:DiggPhotographs by Travis FoxForeword by Philip KennicottRemains To Be Seen explores a disappearing but still tangible American landscape, from the rust-belt towns of the Midwest to the borscht-belt resorts of the Catskill mountains. Using aerial photography with documentary candor and precision, Travis Fox creates a visually sumptuous record of former industrial sites and abandoned neighborhoods that persist as incisions on the landscape, scars in the memory, and traces of healing. Fox finds patterns that would be undetectable from the ground, uncovering a new visual record of old and debilitating problems, from institutionalized racism to environmental destruction. Remains to be Seen offers a bracing vision of an America that has become so familiar that it is, paradoxically, invisible to many Americans. Through a view from above, detached but vulnerable, his camera counters that disappearance and connects old landscapes to contemporary conscience.Travis Fox is an Emmy Award-winning journalist and the Director of Visual Journalism at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY.Philip Kennicott is the Pulitzer Prize-winning Senior Art and Architecture Critic of the Washington Post.  View Details

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.
