CARMEN WINANT — NOTES ON FUNDAMENTAL JOY

NOTES ON FUNDAMENTAL JOY—a new book project by Carmen Winant featuring the photographs of Joan E. Biren (JEB), Clytia Fuller, Tee Corinne, Ruth Mountaingrove, Katie Niles, Carol Osmer, Honey Lee Cottrell and more—documents “a community of women/womyn in their collective embrace of the ‘back to the land’ movement. Through the lens of pervasive image-making—women holding cameras, women taking pictures of women—the project considers the radical potential of social and political optimism predicated on the absence of men.”*

Featuring essays by Winant and Ariel Goldberg, NOTES is out now from Printed Matter.

CARMEN WINANT—NOTES ON FUNDAMENTAL JOY (New York: Printed Matter, 2019).*

The book’s full title is Notes on Fundamental Joy; seeking the elimination of oppression through the social and political transformation of the patriarchy that otherwise threatens to bury us.
