Robert F. Kennedy’s raw empathy, his determination to make Americans’ lives better, and his insistence that government is answerable to all, black and white, rich and poor, was honored on June 8, 1968, as hundreds of thousands of people stood patiently in the searing heat to watch his funeral train travel slowly from New York to Washington, D.C., just as Abraham Lincoln’s had, 103 years before. Paul Fusco photographed the silent, mourning crowds from the passing train. The result, brought to light over thirty-years later, is a moving snapshot of America at a crucial moment of trauma and transition.

Photographs by Zalmaï
Essays by Atiq Rahimi and Daniel Girardin

Zalmaï’s photographs capture the slow, distressing drift of exile and dispossession: spectral figures against a stormy sky, a sheared row of peaks framing a figure like a sacred relic, horizons of men, both of this world and of some timeless land. This is a documentation of a journey through ambiguous territories—from Cuba to India, Mali to the Philippines, Indonesia to Egypt, and a return to Zalmaï’s native Afghanistan—a search for place when one’s own land has been destroyed. Paris-based Afghan novelist, Atiq Rahimi, contributes the lyrical preface “The Memory of the Mirror,” and Daniel Girardin, Curator of the Musée d’Elysée, offers us an in-depth exploration of Zalmaï’s work.

Lillian Bassman
Essay by Martin Harrison

Among the masters of fashion photography, Lillian Bassman reigns today as the doyenne, one of the last great women photographers of the postwar period.

Her forte lies in fitting the product into a romantic ambiance that becomes visual poetry - remembrance of the things past, feelings of the here and now, and a link to the future. Her work is timeless.
