Out of Hollow Water
Published by 2D Cloud
68p?, b&w with some color, softcover, 6"x6"
Out of Hollow Water is an unassuming book, brilliantly and effectively structured around the intersection of unfathomable supernatural terror and very real violations and visceralities of women's bodies. Like Julia Gfrorer's work, there is the sense you are immersed in a deeply witchy and ominous world -here Bongiovanni's forests engulf her characters in a folk tale context as they grapple with death, sexual assault, unwanted pregnancy and emotional trauma. It's direct and yet caresses its subjects with nuance and lingers on the mind. Recommends. -EF
