What We Touch
photographs by Heidi Zeiger
Heidi Zeiger's recent work includes "Shoot to Maim," a February cover story for the Village Voice, and a trek through the mountains of Appalachia to cover the world's longest yard sale, running from Covington, Kentucky to Gadsden, Alabama. At this very moment, she is driving across North America in a packed Volkswagen headed for New York City, where she will be working with the documentary photographer Eugene Richards.
These eight pictures are part of a 30-image essay focusing on how we respond physically to the outside world. The project is an ongoing exploration of the symbiotic relationship between what we touch and how it touches us.
