Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Again selecting an intriguing variety of subjects from city and country - and presenting both animate and inanimate objects with a delightful use of color - this fine photographer pairs uncaptioned images that explore the concept of opposites. Sometimes the ideas are simple: the same gate, open or shut, though even this pair extends an idea from the previous page - an open and closed hand that also represent left and right. Some of the multiple ideas are subtle enough to provoke discussion: Is a swimming duck the opposite of a diving duck? Or is this pair merely a reiteration of the head/tail pairing already introduced with two views of a sheep? Beautiful, elegantly composed, nourishing to eye and mind. (Kirkus Reviews)
