From the Land of Miracles
Can a tormented land, fractured with hatred between its peoples still be called Land of Miracles? Wendy Sue Lamm does not hide the wounds of the everyday reality born of conflict. She juxtaposes attacks and retaliations with delicate, bittersweet ironies. After years in Jerusalem photographing Israelis and Palestinians, Wendy Sue Lamm has become one of the most sincere visual interpreters of the Land of Miracles. This book, with poetry by Arthur Miller and a short story by Emile Habiby, shows the deep beauty of a land where the true miracle may simply be to wake up every morning, and to live through every day.
