About the Author

Louisa Marie Summer, born 1983 in Munich, Germany, is a German photographer, currently based in Brooklyn, NY. In 2010 she graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Photography from the renowned Rhode Island School of Design. Before Louisa studied Photo Design and received her Diploma from the University of Applied Sciences Munich, Germany. Louisa’s photographs and video explore issues of social structure, injustice, identity, and survival. She has worked extensively, among others, in India, Australia and the Republic of Georgia. In Tbilisi she documented the diverse lifestyles of contemporary Georgian youth, torn between religious and traditional values and the promises of Western status symbols like cars and the latest fashion. Maire´ad Byrne is an Associate Professor of Poetry and Poetics at Rhode Island School of Design and was Louisa Marie Summer’s teacher in the early days of this project. She now feels more student than teacher, being led out by Louisa’s photographs into real engagement with writing in service to community, and new relationships with people and neighborhoods in Providence, the city in which she has lived for nine years.

Format: Hardcover
Mrs. Summer's book is a great example of how a fresh foreigner take at domestic social issues can bring a fresh outlook on the world we live in. The photographer followed Jennifer - a Puerto Rican woman - and her family for years, becoming part of the household which allowed her to take these strong and intimate pictures. I am glad that some artists decided to devote her time to chronicle the world we live in and most of the time choose to ignore. A travel in a little known part of America.
