"It is a terrific body of work and I'm not surprised it has been gaining attention. These images have a lot of heart and empathy, they offer detail (wrinkled skin) and a real sense of actual relationships. I feel like these images are, in some sense, an account of love and are timeless in that sense. They do not judge, in fact they celebrate in a gentle and accommodating way." LensCulture.
