Yesterday is a book of photographs made during the summer of 2020. Although much of the country was in the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic, on this remote island off the coast of Maine, we still felt free from much of the toll that Covid was taking. That summer represented a pause in time, a moment where life could feel normal, when we were still holding on to a world of yesterdays.
“Sal Taylor Kydd has created an exquisite exploration of remembrance, with a particular poetry that runs through her images and words. It’s the poetry of knowing a place steeped in personal histories, a place that holds a sense of belonging and timelessness. Yet it’s also the acknowledgement of subtle changes in both human and natural landscapes with cloud shifting sensibilities”.
- Aline Smithson
“This jewel of a book closes with one of Kydd’s poems, gratefully accepting the restorative power of nature in the face of despair – crowning a hopeful keepsake amidst so many dark visions delivered during the pandemic”.
- Elin Spring & Suzanne Revy What Will Your Remember.
“Yesterday is an achievement. It shows us Kydd evolving in her book form. There is a master narrative here, though its something more like Walden than Death on the Installment Plan. The narrative ambles, rather than lurches; it whispers... It is a work of tranquility. A work of silences and deep, unhurried breaths. Yesterday is a set of dream-view goggles to transpose upon your waking eyes.”
