From inside dust jacket: "[Marie Cosindas] has never rejected the idea of dealing with photography as if she were a painter. She puts a premium on control, composition, and formal arrangement. She uses color of the most sensual and evocative sort and is not interested in turning pictures into a dissertation on the nature of photography...Marie Cosindas simply travels on into her fantasy of color, as if by astral projection."
