Publisher's Description

Out of Print.

In 2017, Jenia Fridlyand created an artist’s book that sold out its limited run quickly and was shortlisted for the Paris Photo-Aperture First Photobook Prize. We at TIS books are excited to now offer the highly-anticipated trade edition of that debut monograph, Entrance to Our Valley.

Fridlyand uses her 4x5 view camera with remarkable flexibility and subtlety, rendering not only carefully considered landscapes, but also domestic scenes of surprise and spontaneity. The result is a not so much a narrative as it is an atmosphere; not descriptive of experience but rather evocative of it. One senses ultimately the climate (both literally and figuratively) of the valley in which her immediate and extended family is making a new home for itself. Pictures of the simplest activities of housekeeping – eating and sleeping, planting and harvesting the garden, playing chess – are imbued with the richness of joy and gratitude in Fridlyand’s tender compositions and juxtapositions of interior and exterior life.
