Publisher's Description

Kate Joyce’s Metamorphoses transforms Ovid's collection of myths from the ancient world, written toward the end of his life nearly two thousand years ago, into a vision of contemporary life and of Joyce's own at its creative beginning.

Originally I made the photographs in Chile while traveling alone as a teenager. Twenty-years later I re-imagined the photographs through the narrative lens of myth. — Kate Joyce

The book contains photographs of lovers, bathers, a conman, a wedding, a baptism, hitchhiking and cemeteries. It spans the country from Santiago to Tierra del Fuego. Looking back, these places, people and events, while taken from Joyce's own experience, have come to embody near universal figures from myth—and now we see in them the patterns that are universally described as the fate of Apollo & Daphne, Narcissus & Echo, and Orpheus & Eurydice.
