Praise

“The photographs are in a striking square format, the product of a 1990 purchase [of a Hasselblad camera] that proved serendipitous. . . . Over the years, [Lambrecht] thought about creating a book of her Lichtenstein photographs, and in 2009 she decided to put together a proposal. ‘That’s when I started going into the negatives’ with greater purpose, she said; when she got the contract for her coming book, she continued to dig into her files and print what she called the ‘latent images’ of her negatives, which then ‘came to life’ The process has been ‘a wonderful journey of rediscovering things’ about Mr. Lichtenstein—who died in 1997—and her time in his studio.” —The New York Times

“Lambrecht took these pictures casually, over the course of several years . . . . whenever she looked down into the viewfinder lens of her Hasselblad camera, the change of perspective turned all the bustle and mess of the busy studio—the very stuff of Lichtenstein’s creative process—into a discrete composition, a single sharp-edged image inside a frame.” —Town & Country
