"the photographers in these pages don't miss much. They are fearlessthey dare to experiment, theorize, to argue and harangue, to tease and joke. They are not following anyone's instructions. To use the parlance of the late nineteenth century, the Indians have strayed off the reservation."
Paul Chaat Smith, from ghost in the Machine"
"There is some superb work herefrom still life to documentary, from portraiture to abstraction,and though some of it may not be pretty, in the manner of a souvenir postcard, all of it is honest and genuine... It is gritty, ironic, poignant, and occasionally funny work."
