My Sister Who Travels commemorates an exhibition curated by Martina Caruso, a group show that featured the work of six internationally acclaimed contemporary women artists: Noor Abed, Jananne Al-Ani, Halida Boughriet, Ursula Schulz-Dornburg, Corinne Silva, Esther Boise Van Deman, and Paola Yacoub. In her own way, each artist offers a challenge to the canonical representa-tions of landscape photography. Often straying from conventional tropes, the landscapes presented in this lush catalog articulate places of memory, conflict, colonisation, migration, emptiness, and expanse. The book, beautifully designed to look like a travel journal, also features biographies of the artists and an essay by the curator exploring the role of women in lens-based depictions of landscape.
