The Ancestral Cemeteries of Kyrgyzstan

Communities on Nature’s Edge
By looking at wilderburbs in the West, especially those in Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico, Bramwell uncovers the profound environmental consequences of Americans’ desire to live in the wilderness.
A curated collection of ninety photographs from the more than six hundred portraits she took of Northwest artists, writers, and cultural luminaries, Mary Randlett Portraits documents the region's artistic legacy through one woman's camera lens.
Mary Randlett's photographic vision of the Northwest is big-hearted, intricate, and tender – and fully inhabited by the animals, tides, forests, mountains, and spirits that dwell there – and these magnificent photographs are accompanied by text that sheds light on the artist and her work.
