"The authors of Beautiful Suffering: Photography and the Traffic in Pain place in historical and critical context the production and reception of images of suffering, adding precision and clarity to a divisive debate of visual culture. . . . [The book] offers a larger audience a reasoned approach to an emotionally charged subject. Five essays, along with reproductions of all works exhibited, provide a significant contribution to an excruciating subject."—Kathleen MacQueen, Art Book
