A collection of her photographs that first appeared monthly in Metropolis magazine, Signs & Relics “has the breath and depth of a book that is uncommon in our fast-forward culture… [Plachy] is that rare photographer whose work is soulful and honest, with a visual vocabulary so steeped in the poetic, that her images celebrate her subjects as well as the medium of photography she loves so much” (Nubar Alexanian).
A fine copy.
