“Kim Stringfellow has invented her own genre, a fusion of cultural geography/tour guide and artist’s book. These books are unique as environmental and local histories that are up-to-date, readable (!), and imaginatively illustrated. I’d welcome her into my neighborhood any time.”
(Lucy R. Lippard, author of The Lure of the Local: Sense of Place in a Multicente)
“Stringfellow’s mix of natural and cultural history, social criticism, and art is a smart and succinct addition to the top shelf of desert geographies.”
(Bill Fox, author of In the Desert of Desire: Las Vegas and the Culture of Specta)
“Stringfellow attacks her subject as a historian, a collector, and a photographer with the vision of a Walker Evans on acid.”
(Danny Lyon, author of The Bikeriders and Conversations with the Dead)
