Excellent true portrait of a great American artist, 19 February 2013
Author: farron34 from United States

Known for her use of a large format camera, each shot taken must be very deliberate. In a digital snapshot world, it's always nice to be reminded how the art was originally conceived - and the necessity of proper planning.

I think this may be one of the most honest documentaries made about an artist I've seen. It so tenderly shows her vulnerabilities as an artist, dealing with frustration, lost confidence and rejection in such a delicate and real way, one can't help but be affected by it. It also raises questions about how we, as a culture, view art (photography in particular). Can art only be considered "good" and properly appreciated if it hangs on the walls of the most prestigious museum or gallery?
