A collection of images from “Like a River,” the upcoming photobook by anthropologist and photographer Daniel Jack Lyons. Quickly-to-be-launched by Free Joints, the undertaking explores notions of identity, transformation, and coming-of-age for marginalized groups established towards a backdrop of deep Amazonian rainforest.
Lyons’ qualifications in social and healthcare anthropology initially brought him to the Amazon, where by he labored with Casa do Rio, a community-based organization that celebrates and supports the cultural life of adolescents and young persons living in the depths of the Amazon. With “Like a River,” Lyons focuses a lot more specially on visualizing and empowering trans and queer communities of the region, discovering how deep indigenous traditions and contemporary id politics fulfill in a celebratory, harmless space, deep in the lush canopies and vegetation of the rainforest.
The release of the e book will coincide with a joint exhibition at Les Rencontres d’Arles from July 4 till August 28, exactly where the venture is nominated and exhibited as section of Prix de la Découverte Louis Roederer, and at Loose Joints’ bookshop, Ensemble, from July 1 until September 2.
