Entrance to Our Valley
In 2017, photographer Jenia Fridlyand published Entrance to Our Valley, a Risograph printed artist’s
book about the life and landscape around her farm in the Hudson Valley in New York. “The pictures
are about the process of making a home of this place, making sense of it, and making it my own,” she says.
Specifically, she is interested in questions about relationship to place. “In our family, there is no history
of land ownership not just during the Soviet era, but going back centuries, because Jews were not allowed
to own land in Imperial Russia. This place, this farm, is an opportunity to create, for our children, the
privilege of coming back to a place where they grew up. ” We are excited to offer CBC members this
highly-anticipated, out-of-print trade edition of Entrance to Our Valley. — In addition to this book, members recieve a small inkjet print from Jenia.
