An excellent, thorough review of the photography exhibit. A well-written report on the range of work and the themes represented. The author both relates the body of work effectively, and introduces the story with her own insight on photography as a medium. Not only do I want to see this show, but I want to think more critically about photography's storytelling powers.

This is by far the best review of this photography exhibit that I've read. The writer explores the nature of photography and ties it seamlessly into details of the exhibit. Her depth and breadth of knowledge about art and history are obvious, and the structure of the piece fits its purpose well.
