Book Signing - Stacy Kranitz

Stacy Kranitz has developed an extensive body of work over the past six years while she has been living and working in the Appalachian mountains of North America. Entitled As it was Give(n) to Me, it combines her photography with an archive of collected images, text, drawings and objects that traces the histories of exploration and extraction in the area, and examines representations of reality and the inherent flaws and ruptures in our notions of the truth.

Speak Your Piece is the first book to be produced using some of this material. It combines a selection of her photographs from central Appalachia with extracts from a local newspaper column, in which residents are given space to contribute anything that is on their minds."
