Mermaid Heritage” is an art book about mermaids who function as an essential outsider, the ultimate “other.” They don’t look like humans, have distinct customs and history, and occupy a complicated and uneasy position within human society. The fantastical elements of mermaids’ existence allowed Anna Zusman to consider social issues including discrimination, pollution, and medical experimentation outside of the charged political and social atmosphere in which they are typically discussed.
