Elaine Brière Photo: East Timor Testimony

East Timor Testimony
Between the Lines Press, Toronto, Ontario
64 duotone photographs and original essays by nine authors, including renowned investigator Noam Chomsky.

"What is striking about her portraits is the eyes of her subjects.....we don't just stare at Brière's people: They also stare back at us. Because she captured the human essence of East Timor, Brière's photographs turned out to be enormously effective as political art. After seeing her pictures, it was hard to dismiss East Timor as a faraway place of little consequence."

Jeet Heer, National Post, June 17, 2004
