A Lamb Named Beauty shows the life of two twin sisters Kimberly and Gwendolyn. The series started in 2007, when the sisters were 10 years old. I tried to give a candid impression about how the twins take care of each other, and the many animals that are gathered around them. The twins seem to live in a domain all of their own, taking strength from their love from one another.

Long before iPhones and Instagram: 60 years of one Dutch girl's "selfies" firing a gun into the camera! Outrageous lifetime photo concept — watch her age in the same pose — a split second after she pulls the trigger of her rifles — from age 16 to 88.
Our selection is quirky, subjective, untraditional, and probably not like many other lists of favorite photobooks out there — but each is a gem, in our opinion. Enjoy!
The photography of Vanessa Winship establishes a dialogue with the mark left by the twentieth century on people and the places they have passed through: long processes defined by movements of fracture and integration, the instability of frontiers and the reaffirmation of identities. In short, her images focus on the effect of history on everyday life.
