The Persistence of Family by Diana Cheren Nygren
During the isolation resulting from the pandemic, family has taken on a new centrality. Our connections to our ancestors and our descendants often feel stronger than connections to those around us. I often wish my children knew my grandparents. These are portraits of my children as the product of a history of lives lived and intertwined, each effecting and shaping the other.
The Surge of Women Photographers in Paris between WWI and WWII
In the aftermath of the Great War (WWI), several women embraced photography. And Paris, a key crossroads of the avant-garde, became a fundamental meeting place for many women artists who came from various backgrounds and countries.
The Melancholic Aesthetic of Urban Decay by Raju Peddada IV
Decay, is a process with no cessation, an unstoppable process that includes all organic life, as well as the inorganic. From the time you are delivered, you are absorbed into the process of decay, all the way through to your demise, at which point, whether you are buried, cremated, or mummified, you will return back to the base elements from which you were created. On our walks with our him, we used to observe the conquest of decay over an iron plate.
Last Night I Dreamt I Knew How to Swim by Natalie Christensen
The first pool I remember was the one I fell into as a small child. It was at an apartment complex that my young parents lived in. I recall falling in, opening my eyes, and seeing the color of the water and the reflection of sunlight shimmering in my field of vision. My mother pulled me out. I was around four years old. Eventually I became a good enough swimmer and spent the summers of my childhood and adolescence in any pool I could find.
Mother Earth by Lily Glass
Connections between earth and woman can be found in the language commonly used in reference to each (fertile, virgin, bearing fruit, barren, rape, pillage, drill), which focus solely on either's ability to reproduce or sustain life. The two are also held to unrealistic expectations and standards while their worth is contingent upon the ways they satisfy our specific needs at any given time.
WILD by Helle and Uri Lovevild Golman
On their 25th and last expedition to Gabon, Uri was stabbed by a supposed poacher from Boko Haram on a local market. The next day he died for 2 minutes during heart surgery but luckily Uri survived as his will to live was obviously stronger than death and today he is still grateful for life even sitting in a wheelchair learning how to walk again. Helle is just as much of a fighter, standing by his side for the whole time, dedicating every minute of her life to Uri.
Conversations with Myself by Jo Ann Chaus
After seven years of documenting and exploring my relationships with and within my family of origin, in 2016 I self-published the work Sweetie & Hansom, and began the current series of self-portraits, Conversations with Myself, in which I dress and perform as a mid century woman, appropriating the garb and demeanor of my mother's generation.<
Modern Nomads by Callie Eh
Mongolia is a landlocked country located between China and Russia. It is a vast emptiness that links land and sky and is one of the last few places on the planet where nomadic life is still a living tradition. Mongolia may have various geopolitical, cultural, and geographical meanings. Mongolia consists of historic Outer Mongolia. The province of Inner Mongolia is geographically and politically separate and located in the northern part of China, yet it borders Mongolia.
To Be, Rather Than to Seem by Jefferson Caine Lankford
The American South has an essence that sparingly reveals itself, thus requiring unprecedented determination and patience to photograph all its splendor. Nevertheless, and despite its elusiveness, this essence I am chasing - permeates; it lingers in the air of North Carolina, and when discovered, puts on a magnificent display. This essence appears in the eyes of a jet-black cat within an abandoned barn: it agonizes within the face of an elderly Amish man; it breathes deep within the shadow of a stray dog crossing a back road; it flourishes within the wings of starlings above a farm after heavy rain; it shines on a dilapidated door in the middle of nowhere, and it tirelessly works in the tobacco fields without complaint.
