    1. A photographer I must have rediscovered half a dozen times and with this book I'm sure he will not again escape my consciousness.Iconic images abound from this photographer and the stories of them and Smith's work solidify his place in photographic art history. edited 9-4-09



    2. Beautiful and bracing photography that, in its rootedness, speaks volumes. I'm grateful for the bits included from written essays by Smith, as well as the broad selection covering not only his war photography, but a variety of other subjects as well. I'm especially fond of his photographs of Nurse Callen and her world, as well as the famous "Return to Paradise Garden."
