"Photos capture 'humble buildings' of prairie"
The quotations that accompany the photographs are as spare and lovely as MacKenzie's work, and each plays off the other.
Star Tribune Staff Writer
Sunday, June 24, 2001 --Star Tribune, Arts
Maxwell Mackenzie's American Ruins, is much more than a simple documentation of "forgotten places of American human habitation." ... Mackenzie has produced...a visual treat for the panorama enthusiast as well as history buffs and photographers of all genre.
--Gregory W. Blank --Photovision Art & Technique Magazine
Although the photos do not show exactly how lives were lived, their power lies in their eerie ability to conjure up personal and collective tales that lead one to wonder, additionally enhancing the impact of the images...In their quiet but commanding way, they too say a great deal, MacKenzie seemingly reiterating the notion that since this is all that remains, attention must be made.
