"Showcases the unique genius of photographer Mario Algaze, whose deep appreciation and understanding of the nuances of light - sunlight pouring in through church windows, illuminating a pair of teacups on a cafe table, casting late-afternoon shadows on a cobblestoned street - is both legendary and rare" (Publisher's blurb). "There is a sense of something else, of something more: A world evolving, a lover scorned, a crime of passion about to be committed, in Mario Algaze's black-and-white photographs. Considered one of the masters of the art, he manages to capture evocative scenes that live beyond the images frozen by his camera" (Miami Herald).
