”It is only when Marilyn Stafford’s images are gathered all together in a book that you begin to appreciate the breadth and beauty of her work and her life. Actors, artists, writers, politicians, peasants, fashion models, migrants, musicians, refugees, and street children, all captured on film with skill, love, humour and respect. This book has been a long time coming, but it has definitely been worth waiting for. Enjoy!” Tom Stoddart, photojournalist.
