"A book that has achieved cult status," Dialogue with Solitude is an outstanding for its attempt "to photograph internal emotions… [by investigating] the essential solitude of an individual through a series of sequences."--Parr & Badger. As the late John Szarkowski commented, Heath's genius was to combine "the freedom and spontaneity of the small-camera approach with a rare formal intensity and precision. His pictures possess stability, simplicity and great emotional fire."
