Carrie Yamaoka is a visual artist working in New York City. She is also a founding member of the queer art collective fierce pussy.
This is from a series I was working on in the early 1990sre-reading, re-writing, re-working books that had been banned from import into the US or banned from school libraries. I shot portions of the books on a copy camera with black and white film and then worked back into the gelatin silver prints, using reducing agents to chemically (partially) erase and edit them. This one is from Another Country by James Baldwin.
