"Ross proves that there is no need to distort or play any number of photographic tricks to attain a picture that is involving, has many layers of meaning, rich detail and irony, and is strangely beautiful as well.
Pamela Kessler, Washington Post
"If Mr. Ross stresses the deadening atmosphere of museums by focusing on sedate rows of framed paintings and encased samples of the world's wildlife, his photographs achieve a vitality of their own through humorous juxtapositions, suggestive light and, sometimes, sheer glowing beauty.
