Kelli Connell's portfolio Double Life
"This work represents an autobiographical questioning of sexuality and gender roles that shape the identity of the self in intimate relationships...I am interested in not only what the subject matter says about myself, but also what the viewer's response to these images says about their own identities and social constructs."—Kelli Connell

Richard Avedon, 1923-2004
"Richard Avedon, whose fashion and portrait photographs helped define America's image of style, beauty and culture for the last half-century, died today in a hospital in San Antonio, Tex. He was 81 and lived in Manhattan...

'A portrait is not a likeness,' Avedon [once] said... 'The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.'"—Andy Grundberg, The NY Times

Robert Capa's <i>Slightly Out of Focus</i>Robert Capa's Slightly Out of Focus
Capa was one of the important war photographers of the twentieth century and also a storyteller par excellence, and the combination of his photographs of World War II and his account of personal adventures make this a wartime book with much human appeal. One of Roth's 101 seminal photography books of the twentieth century.
