Description


Literary Nonfiction. Photography. Latino/Latina Studies. Often outsiders enter Third World communities with an agenda so pronounced that their vision is hindered by their mission. But Isa as Orozco-Lang's photographic tour of the Dominican Republic community La Yag ita del Pastor is a window into the soul of a community that allows not just a voyeur's glimpse, but an entry into its mysteries.

Orozco-Lang manages to photograph dire, absolute poverty with an artistic and perceptive eye that captures the sensitivity and hopeful spirit of the Dominican people. These are simply beautiful images of a people, trapped brilliantly and magically in time.--Ramona Hernandez.
