An excerpt from DEAR DAVE, 25

Combining domestic pictures with domestic craft and elevating both of those to the status of art, her work possesses both breath-taking technical skills that weaken with every new generation and contemporary desires to question the role and function of photography. There is heart in the latter, something I feel is often lacking in much of contemporary photography. Her interest in the photographic object is one that is motivated by how photographs maintain connections between people, rather than more ontological investigations or theoretical concerns of image making per se.
