Despite its title, On Onions is a study of things that make us cry ― a physical action that is loaded with emotion. (Megan N. Liberty Hyperallergic)
Although it is easy―and certainly satisfying―to consume On Onions in a single sitting, its layers are only truly revealed upon revision.

Artist Book of the Year; This photographic study mixes pictures of the allium in its many forms―red, Spanish, white, scallion―with eerily similar images of contact lenses, prosthetic eyes and X-rays of retinas. Artist Angie Keefer supplies short texts interspersed throughout the book, examining not only onions but also Euripedes, the term "lacrimal" and the act of crying, described by Keefer as "ongoing, automatic, silent, and possibly worth dwelling on in those moments when you feel like you can't do anything right." (Editors Art in America)
