"Debbie Fleming Caffery's images can be seen as articles of faith. The relentless insistence of subject and symbol in these images is assuredly their greatest strength. This vigor results from a tension that can be both visual and emotional. In this marshy no-man's-land between description and illusion, her photographs serve as an able guide to truths that are better sensed than seen? (John Lawrence). An absolute "must-have" title for Debbie Fleming Caffery collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page. It is very boldly, beautifully, and elaborately signed in black pen-marker by Debbie Fleming Caffery. We have not seen a more unusual and beautiful signature than Debbie Fleming Caffery's. Her signature can truly be said to be a work of art in itself. This title is a contemporary art photography classic.

Please note: Should NOT be confused with and is superior in terms of production values to the regular trade edition of 1000 copies.
