I especially enjoyed reading the foreword written by Georgia O'Keeffe and appreciated some of the photographs she had chosen for the book. My complaint would be the repetition or redundancy obvious in her selection. But I am a big fan of the documenting of a specific life and the accomplishment of a large body of work. O'Keeffe seems to have appreciated the efforts and persuasions of her Stieglitz.

A stunning collection. I am fascinated by the interaction between these two artists and the results of their collaborations, specifically in Stieglitz's portraits of O'Keeffe.

Exquisite black and white photographs of Georgia O'Keeffe taken by her husband Alfred Stieglitz over a period of 30 years. I especially like the photographs of her hands. Her hands are an artist's hands; they look like sculptures.
