At least her work is, and courtesy of the Jeu de Paume, I had the chance to see it yesterday.
Here is my review: She is a genius (ok, was a genius). Her work is heart-rendingly beautiful. And the exhibit itself is its own little piece of magic.
They literally had to push us out the door at the 9 p.m. closing time.
Here are some quotes by her:
"Every Difference is a Likeness too."And just because I saw it there at the exhibit, I include this little couplet by William Blake:
"A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know."
"Nothing is ever the same as they say it was. It's what I've never seen before that I recognize."
"If the Sun or the Moon should doubt,
They'd immediately go out."
