Lisa Kristine took an early interest in anthropology and 19th-century photographic printing techniques -- passions that have since predominated her work. In 1999, and again in 2000, she presented her photography at the State of the World Forum. In 2003, she published her first book, A Human Thread, capturing and "intimate and honest portrait of humanity." In 2007, her second book, This Moment, won the bronze metal at the Independent Publisher Book Awards. She also produced two documentary films to accompany each book -- exposing her techniques and the stories behind her photographs. In 2010, Kristine travelled the world in collaboration with Free the Slaves to document the harrowing lives of the enslaved. Slavery was published in 2010.
