Short Take: Two – photographs by Melissa Ann Pinney; introduced and edited by Ann Patchett

I have to fess up that I haven’t seen this yet—but I can hardly wait for it to arrive. This collection by acclaimed photographer Pinney explores the idea of pairs and the varied ways we are bound to one another. Patchett writes the introduction and edits ten original pieces by writers Billy Collins, Edwidge Danticat, Elizabeth Gilbert, Allan Gurganus, Jane Hamilton, Barbara Kingsolver, Elizabeth McCracken, Maile Meloy, Susan Orlean, and Richard Russo.

Pinney’s work is in the permanent collections of many museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the International Center for Photography; the George Eastman House, and J.Paul Getty Museum. Patchett and the other writers are a crew you are well familiar with. It should be cool!
