Quite by chance I came across her book ‘Outside Passage’ some years ago which is a rivetting read about her extraordinary childhood. Highly recommneded.
An example of her outstanding writing was an article on Robert Frank, co-authered with Andy Grundberg, in the October 1978 edition of Modern Photography. This article was referred to and discussed at Tate Modern’s ‘Robert Frank Symposium’ in 2004 http://www.tate.org.uk/onlineevents/archive/robert_frank/
as an example of one of the best pieces ever written about the photographer.
As an aside, this was not the only interesting article in this October edition of 1978. There was a Herbert Keppler’s first look at Pentax’s wonderful 110 Pocket SLR with interchangeable lenses, a bit about Vivitar’s new 35-85mm f2.8 Series 1 lens, (wow), another article by Julia Scully, this time reporting from the 9th Annual Photographic Festival in Arles, France, and much, much more.
You won’t find a magazine covering such breadth and quality these days, which is a shame. Perhaps there’s a blog out there doing it now. Some please tell me of it.]]>
