Eugenia Petty

Eugenia Petty is a poet and photographer living in Aptos, California. She took this month’s cover photograph in 1995 in Solonka, Ukraine, where she was serving as a Peace Corps volunteer. The man in the photograph was her landlord, and he was just emerging from a root cellar, where his pig had been recovering from a fever. The man was thrilled that the pig was healthy again.
