“Where Shall I Go” documents the lives of people living in the "Land of Fire," in Campania in Southern Italy in the provinces of Naples and Casereta, where illegal dumping has been going on for more than 20 years and locals face high rates of cancer.  "I don't think anyone will survive," said a repentant accountant for organized crime who testified about the dumping.

A Ritual of Exile: Blood Speaks  investigates normalized violence against women in Nepal. Perpetrated under the guise of Hindu tradition, the root cause of this violence is the belief in the impurity of a women’s menstrual blood. Hidden, under-reported and unresolved, these women are untouchable and, as a result, this violence takes the form of ‘exile.'  The hardcover book will have appoximately 60 images and associated text.  It is available for pre-order in our bookstore.
