"...the images in Photographs are among [Siskind's] most sophisticated and deft. Working with found, often abject elements of the material and natural world--with peeling plaster, splattered tar, rust, graffiti, rocks, a curl of seaweed in the sand--[he] reduces subject matter to pure form"--Vince Aletti writing in Roth, et. al., The Book of 101 Books
