To learn more about Lissie Habie and the origins of New Roots Foundation, Lissie Habie: A Life in Pictures can be purchased. All proceeds from book sales support our Art & Culture initiatives.
Guatemalan Photographer Lissie Habie (1954-2008) began her photographic career at age thirty-two. An avid collector of nineteenth-century photography, she immersed herself in the study of various techniques and processes, while attending workshops given by well-known photographers such as Duane Michaels and Jerry Uelsmann. In time, she developed her own distinctive photographic style based on dogged experimentation and a devotion to a highly expressive brand of poetic pictorialism. A brilliant photographer, passionate collector, and committed humanitarian, Habie fought bravely for the union of art and life on many fronts. This publication brings together two decades of her photographs, alternative prints, assemblages, and sculptures.
