New York photographer Amy Stein's work "explores our evolving isolation from community, culture and the environment." Her recently released book, "Domesticated", began when she was in grad school. "I was simply trying to make compelling images that wouldn't get eviscerated in critique," she says of the project. "As the series progressed, I began to become interested in exhibiting the work and have had many opportunities to do so this year. The Critical Mass book is the icing on the cake."
There's an extended interview with Amy Stein on the Feature Shoot photo blog.
