“Separated by the Forest” is the product of an almost yearlong collaboration between the photographers Etty Schwartz and Amit Mann with Bookieman publishing. The featured photographs are those that have passed all the stages of the selection process – carried out by the editor in collaboration with the photographers – and made their way into the book. The photographers document and produce visual responses to what takes place in their lives. The editor functions as a filter of sorts, distilling from the full world of imager the most fascinating, and at times the most intimate moments.
