MFA Faculty H. L. Hix & Alum Heather Lang’s There’s This Place I Know… (Serving House Books)

There’s This Place I Know…, edited by MFA faculty H. L Hix and MFA alum Heather Lang, is now out through Serving House Books. MFA faculty Walter Cummins explores this collaborative effort:

This book shares an abundance of delightful discoveries. As a viewer-reader, you can’t be sure where the journey will take you next. At one moment you’re intrigued by a green vista that’s next to a close-up of a bird on a patch of parched earth. Turn the page and you’re caught up in the white flow of a waterfall. You never know where you’ll end up as you travel through There’s This Place I Know … It could be in the Swiss Alps or above Parisian rooftops or on the Maine coast or just on a front porch that entices you with a checkered tablecloth. But this book offers much more than photographs. These photos are inseparable from the people who chose them to illustrate spots in the world—their worlds—so vital to their lives. That human connection deepens the significance of the pictures. They invite us into places where the external is the internal and allow us to experience both.

Within There’s This Place I Know…, you’ll find dozens of contributions including picture postcards from FDU MFA faculty Renee Ashley and the following MFA alum:

Kahle Alford
Brian Bradford
Carol Fragale Brill
Letisia Cruz
Sophia Egbelo
C. Lee Faris
Cory Johnston
Tim Lindner
Tracey Michae’l Lewis-Giggetts

This collaborative project was born from the  H. L. Hix In Quire Picture Postcards project.
