Living Shrines of Uyghur China: Photography by Lisa Ross

Ross’s work broadens our understanding of one of the world’s greatest cultural crossroads. The conceptual and aesthetic dimensions of Ross’s photographs speak to the visual beauty, visceral ardency, and sacred gravity of these sites. The depth of Ross’s work will be enhanced by a book, Living Shrines of Uyghur China, to be released by Monacelli Press at the time the exhibition opens.
