Just returned from viewing this show at the Detroit Institute of Arts and was very impressed. Unfortunately only a fraction of the book is on display, but what is up is quite beautiful. Those who I have seen trashing her for only being famous because of the people she shoots need to think again. She has some very wonderful work. There is one particular portrait that grabbed me of Pete Seeger on the banks of the Hudson. BIG, beautiful and in color with his "machine that kills fascists" slung over his back... wow. Many many others. It was also my opinion that the more loose and spontaneous images were by far the best. The formal portraits are nice, but a bit forced whereas the more spontaneous "snaps" if you will were for me the strongest work.
If you are in the area and you get a chance to see this, don't pass it up.
Also... Bravo to the DIA!!!! The renovation is almost done and this is nothing less than a world class museum.
