Antony Gormley  "A black-and-white photograph of a black and white church photographed in a snowstorm against a bleached sky in which ground and air seem connected through the promise of a distant horizon. The scene is made immediate by the short diagonal flecks of falling snow.

 

The image is dark but full of feeling, the means limited but the effect wide. It talks of a human need for shelter not just for the body but for our imagined visions of the other side of an unknown and ill-perceived horizon."

 

Anthony Horowitz  "Her work is extraordinary. I am in awe."

 

Robin Woodhead, CEO Sotheby's  "Work of outstanding quality and impact... a photographic eye that deserves the broadest acknowledgement... an emotive connection to each one of her subjects delivered with superb technical ability."
