"I am so moved by Danni Quintos's beautiful book Python— I am moved by the precision and music, in a wonderful dance with the photographs, with which she explores what must be one of our fundamental questions: where, and how, might we belong? Python does not give us answers, which is part of its honesty. But its necessary labor, its wonderful labor, is in illuminating the questions. Because the questions, illuminated, make a kind of home."
