Item description for From the Land of Miracles by Wendy Sue Lamm...
Can a tormented land, fractured with hatred between its peoples still be called Land of Miracles? Wendy Sue Lamm does not hide the wounds of the everyday reality born of conflict. She juxtaposes attacks and retaliations with delicate, bittersweet ironies. After years in Jerusalem photographing Israelis and Palestinians, Wendy Sue Lamm has become one of the most sincere visual interpreters of the Land of Miracles. This book, with poetry by Arthur Miller and a short story by Emile Habiby, shows the deep beauty of a land where the true miracle may simply be to wake up every morning, and to live through every day.

A view from inside Nov 23, 2005
Israel, and more specifically, Jerusalem, may be among the more photographed locales these days, but you've never seen photographs like this. Wendy Lamm manages to illustrate truths about the situation on the ground here that are all too often impossible to articulate in another medium. She blends an artist's eye with crack photojournalist skills to come up with a compelling series of photographs that push the envelope of the genre. Little wonder that this talented photojournalist won a World Press Association award for spot news (Europe's version of the Pulitzer Prize)for her gun-level view of street violence in the West Bank. With an introduction by poet Arthur Miller, this is an important book by an emerging artist, and one worthy of purchase for anyone with an interest in, or love of, this tumultuous region, its history and its residents.
