9780062334428: Two

Two is an exquisite collection of captivating and thought-provoking photographs by award-winning photographer Melissa Ann Pinney that contemplate the essence of duality in our relationships and in the world that surrounds us. Edited and introduced by Pinney's friend, New York Times bestselling author Ann Patchett, the volume is filled with memorable images that encase rich stories: two children at play, a pair of aging friends, parent and child, couples in love. But deeper meanings can lurk in the margins of the frame, in the expressions in the eyes, in the disconnect of the connection. Photographs without human subjects bear their own mysteries: two nesting tea cups, an indoor pool, two chairs in autumn.Pinney, whose work is in the permanent collections of dozens of American museums, including the Metropolitan, MoMA, The Art Institute of Chicago, and the Getty, aims her lens at pairs—mostly, but not always human—that display or imply elusive connections of mind, of spirit, or of simply the act of being.

Patchett, whose enthusiasm for Pinney's vision helped bring this project to fruition, has paired the photographs with remarkable essays about the nature of two, commissioned from some of the best writers at work today: Edwidge Danticat, Barbara Kingsolver, Richard Russo, Elizabeth Gilbert, Susan Orlean, Alan Gurganus, Maile Meloy, Elizabeth McCracken, Jane Hamilton, and Billy Collins (who provides a beautiful poem celebrating "two creatures bound by wonderment.")

"I've always been interested in watching people together. I wonder what their story is, who they are to each other," Pinney writes in the preface. "No matter how uninspired I feel, how dull I think a place is, when I look at the world through a camera a new beginning takes place."

Filled with startling, sensitive images and nuanced prose, Two is an illuminating keepsake of human experience, at once universal and unique.

Product Description:

A provocative, nuanced, and beautiful exploration of the relationship between two beings—relatives, friends, teammates, lovers, owners and pets—captured in 75 stunning full-color images from an award-winning fine art photographer, and accompanied by thoughtful essays from ten of our finest contemporary writers curated and edited by bestselling author Ann Patchett.

They share a bond that is deep and abiding, sometimes playful, mystical, and utterly profound. They are two: parent and child; siblings; best friends; soulmates; companion and minder. They are young, older, and every age in between; from diverse places and all walks of life. In this exquisite study, photographer Melissa Ann Pinney is joined by ten extraordinary writers—Billy Collins, Edwidge Danticat, Elizabeth Gilbert, Allan Gurganus, Jane Hamilton, Barbara Kingsolver, Elizabeth McCracken, Maile Meloy, Susan Orlean, and Richard Russo—in a gorgeous and thoughtful exploration of what it means to be two.

While the beauty of the words illuminate the experience of two, the gorgeous, carefully sequenced images make visible the visceral, capturing the allure and mystery of this magnetic connection between two unique souls—drawing our attention to interpret, to ponder, to consider each bond depicted, and to reflect on our own—compelling us to revisit each again and again.
