“Ken and Melanie Light’s book, a thoughtful and humane work, is a new, sensitive reanalysis of our dependence on the Valley, told through elegant pictures and text. The pictures are personal; they recall the tradition of the documentary photographs of the region’s artistic forebears, especially Dorothea Lange’s, but they are new, and — if one can even hazard the word in such situations — very beautiful.”
—–Sandra S. Phillips, Senior Curator of Photography, San Francisco Musuem of Modern Art
