it was amazing

Like many a photography undergrad, I gave this book only half of my attention the first time around. Shelley Rice's interpretation of it got through to me, though, and I now teach it to my classes and love it. It's a love story about losing a mother and describes the line between sentimentality and strict critical analysis as well as any other book I know.
