Lynn Gilbert, a widely published photographer and author living in New York City, has traveled to more than sixty countries during the past six decades.

The Silk Road: Then and Now
The Silk Road: Then and Now (2015), documents for the first time the traditional houses of Turkey, a significant part of that country’s cultural heritage. Gilbert's photographs are powerful, mysterious and elegant. Unlike the voyeurism of tourist photography or the romanticism of travel photography, her thoughtful work offers us cultural anthropology as art.
