MEDIA REVIEWS
0;Inspired by the birth of her daughter, Emma, and dedicated to her departed mother, "Regarding Emma" is a provocative collection of complex, allegorical images of girls and women and the mysterious world they inhabit.1;2;Paul Brown, "Seattle"" Post-Intelligencer"

0;Melissa Ann Pinney is making powerful art. In matters of light, color, and composition she is flawless. But these are not simply constructions of elements. These photographs bear witness to the speed at which the little girl becomes the old woman, to the fleeting, breathless beauty of childhood, to life itself, which leaves us stunned in its wake.1;--Ann Patchett, from the Foreword

0;In reviewing the technically brilliant and elegantly composed photographs that make up Melissa Ann Pinney7;s "Regarding Emma," I was stuck by just how fluid time becomes over the arc of so many fastidious frames. . . . We can7;t trust time because time cannot be trusted, because time is elastic and plays tricks. The girl is the woman and the woman is the girl. The first of anything2;first moon, first clutch of flowers2;is but an echo of all that has already gone before. This is the story "Regarding Emma" so movingly tells, as Pinney thoughtfully juxtaposes photographs of her own daughter with photographs from a series she calls 6;Feminine Identity.7; Compassionately constructed, shockingly vivid and lovingly introduced by writer Ann Patchett, this is a book that stirs the heart.1;2;Beth Kephart, "Chicago"" Tribune"
