Footprints: Travel Imaginaries Through Photography–Linda Briskin


Linda Briskin is a writer and fine art photographer. Her creative nonfiction bends genres, makes quirky connections and highlights social justice themes—quietly. Frozen Air, an editor’s pick, was published in CNF journal Barren in 2020, and What the Body Remembers in *82Review in 2021. Hubris is forthcoming in Canary. In her fiction, she is drawn to writing about whimsy, fleeting moments, and the small secrets of interior lives. In 2021, these flash pieces—Purple Polish and Red Silk—were published in Tipping the Scales, and Modest Sabotage in Cobalt Review. As a photographer, she is intrigued by the permeability between the remembered and the imagined, and the ambiguities in what we choose to see.She alsoseeks new ways to combine text and image. Recently, her photographs were published in The Hopper, Flare Journal, Alluvian, Canadian Camera, Tiny Seed Literary Journal, Burningword Literary Journal and High Shelf Press. In 2021 and 2022, her photographs were chosen for the Herstory exhibit sponsored by Manhattan Arts International.
