Steidl, 2003

Solomon's first monograph, Chapalingas, tells tales of rootedness and loneliness, poverty and affluence, moments of hope and moments of happiness. The photographs are grouped into associative categories such as Food, Wheels, Splits, Hearts, Play and Faith, prompting the viewer to compare the motifs present in her more than 160 images. Accompanied by Solomon’s poetic text, which sheds light on the contexts in which her photographs were taken and the personal thoughts they engendered.
