• Beyond Here Is Nothing - Laura El-Tantawy

    Beyond Here Is Nothing

    Beyond Here Is Nothing is a photo-book object meditating on home. A place of belonging, a tranquil state of mind; a nostalgic memory or an imaginary destination – home is a perpetual possibility El-Tantawy is journeying to reach.

Seventy women, reportedly ill, none older than thirty-five, reside within its boundaries.
