From Library Journal 
  
This sumptuous book, a tribute to one of the most talented photographers of the American West, includes over 250 beautifully reproduced portraits selected from the thousands Cunningham made over her long and prolific career. Cunningham was one of photography's earliest advocates of medium-format photography, and the flexibility of her small, twin-lens camera is clearly evident in the relaxed, almost spontaneous tone of her work. Cunningham's refreshingly informal approach results in a collection of open, honest portraits of the notable people of her time, including Dorothea Lange, Sherwood Anderson, Gertrude Stein, and Gary Grant. Along with the quiet dignity that pervades her work, there is an abiding sense of humanity and a touch of whimsy. Lorenz (Imogen Cunningham: Flora, LJ 5/1/96) furnishes a fine account of the artist's approach to portraiture, a detailed biography of her work, and a helpful time line. Essential for libraries with major art and photography collections and highly recommended for all others.?Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, IL
