Disquiet by Amani Willett, is a meditation on starting a family in a time of social unrest and uncertainty in America. A metaphoric journey that examines the first two years in the life of my son, Disquiet weaves intimate family pictures with images of American society and the economic and political concerns at the time. Amani’s images of his growing son and family are atypical, int he sense that they don’t involve cute, goggly faces, and funny customs. Instead they depict a rather melancholic, dark, and anxious view. It tells a story of time and unpredictable change. We know that photographs do not change the past or the an outcome, yet Amani sets out to depict our instinct to love and desire to protect.

Please visit Amani Willett’s personal site for more work and to purchase Disquite. Published by Damiani 2013.

Christine Redmond - Sea Change published by Artist Photobooks 2nd edition (2014) first edition originally published by Roundtower (2013)
Another great book by the team at Artist Photobooks. With this one, Christine Redmond has chosen to show us Forty Foot located on Dublin Bay’s southern tip where people have been swimming year-round for over 250 years. It was originally exclusively for men but in the 70’s, during the women’s liberation movement a group of female equal-rights activists jumped into the waters and it has since been open to women and children as well.
Forty Foot has a lot of history and the foreword provided by Ian Bamford does a great job of teaching us some of it. It is known for it’s strong Joycean connections. The opening section of Ulysses was set in Forty Foot. Unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with Joyce’s work and can’t really comment on it. But from what I’ve heard of Ulysses, I definitely hope to read it one day.
The place’s intended purposes have undoubtably changed throughout the years, from military defence post to popular bathing place. It has become a place where people come to escape. to be free of judgement, free of daily stresses, free of all thought. Like a form of meditation I suppose. Those who swim these waters let it all go.
The photography really confirms these ideas about the Forty Foot. Its calm, quiet waters contrast its cold, harsh surroundings and it’s as if stepping into the water will make it all disappear.

Photographer Karen Glaser isn’t taking your average photos of Florida swamps. 

Glaser uses her scuba training to capture intriguing images of the underwater muck and grime found in the swamps of Everglade National Park.
