I think David's post probably sums up my own feelings pretty well.
She may be 'striving' a little to be different - and there may be elements that others could do better (I don't think that many, when you try and count them, have tried..). At the same time it does surprise me a little how dismissive some of the posts on this thread have been.
There again I do wonder about the over self-consious 'intent' that seems necessary to photographers often - how to do what you want and retain a simplicity and directness, without an overbearing sense of the photographer's 'presence'. (Does she manage it in some way or not at all, I'm not sure). I sometimes think that's something harder and harder to find in contemporary portraiture.
