When Lynn Alleva Lilley (USA) moved with her family to Amman, Jordan, she was uncertain how she would be perceived as an American and a woman. Far away from her home and her father, who was ill at the time, she tried to make a home for her family and used her photography to go out and try to make sense of what she was seeing and feeling. Over the course of three years she photographed the Jordanian people, Syrian and Iraqi refugees, animals in private zoos and farms, bird migration and landscapes. Themes such as displacement, entrapment and adaptation are strongly reflected in this book. Her alienating images express conflicting emotions as nurturing and pain, suffering and resignation, solitude and companionship, beauty and decay.
