KIRKUS REVIEW

Hoban's use of her camera to express basic concepts has become progressively more abstract and less dogmatic. Here she uses no words or obvious progression at all, but merely presents a series of pictures united by strong, geometrical compositions. In a few of the photos--of cut cookies, a house of cards, and a cross section of pipes-- the shapes are determined by the subject matter; others--roller skating feet, a tugboat, a girl hanging by her knees--are more subtle and the shapes are imposed by the photographer. This could just as well be a lesson in basic photography or design as an exercise in geometrical form--in any case it's a real eye opener.
