A Crack in the World explores empathy for all sentient beings and the planet in the face of global warming.

A Crack In The World presents Barbara Kyne's photographs of the five acres which she and her partner share in Mariposa, California. Kyne photographs as a means of looking for clues to so-¬called reality, wondering what is outside of the environment that she can detect with her own limited human biology-ultimately producing 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 unsensed and imagined. A Crack In The World contains fresh and elegant, yet layered and technically complex, photographs made with the intention of inspiring empathy for all beings and the planet that sustains us. 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.
