The Valley Of The Shadow

The Valley of the Shadow is a collection of photography by Miron Zownir that documents a world of unconditional authenticity, dire ecstasy, and demonical possession that exists in the shadows of urban areas in New York, Berlin, and post-Communist Eastern Europe. As controversial as they are uncompromising and poetic, Zownir’s expressionistic black and white portraits capture the morbid dignity of society’s misfits, freaks, and the homeless. Miron Zownir is a German-Ukrainian photographer, filmmaker, and author whose critically acclaimed work has been featured in international solo and group exhibitions as well as renowned publications. Because his visual language takes viewers to the limit of what they can tolerate, The Valley of the Shadow is not a book for the faint-hearted.
