For New York City-based photographer Magdalena Sole, visiting the Mississippi Delta for the first time was like returning to a home she never knew she missed. Since then, she has spent eighty four days and traversed over 10,000 miles of land between the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers, discovering happiness and heartache as they erupt in tandem across the Southern plains.
Chinese born, California based photographer Wenxin Zhang created Goodnight Stories during a time in 2011 when she was a new comer to San Francisco. Feeling anxiety about this new environment and the pressure to be a young adult, she sought after strangers with whom to connect. Taking to the internet, she found a community of people who have found alternative housing conditions and asked permission to photograph them at home. The result is a fairy-tale like narrative that blurs the lines between reality and fantasy.
