That experience inspired this photo exhibit as well as fine press book with Dave Wofford of Horse & Buggy Press. Fitzpatrick has written several lyrical essays about her time in the fragile and beautiful landscape of Maji Moto, witnessing the struggles of the people and wildlife to survive. Her training as both an artist and a biologist informs her work.
