Lydia Panas is fearless in confronting human subjects, and frankly curious about human
interaction, but her interest is tender. Hidden under the hood of her field camera, she gives her
models space to reveal themselves, and their connections to each other, and they do - in all their complex glory.”
Maile Meloy, Author

“Lydia Panas’ ability to capture and convey the complexity of human relationships has made her a rising star
in contemporary portraiture. “ Conor Risch, Photo District News

"There is a complicated range of emotions depicted in Panas' photographs, and all
are presented with an honesty and nakedness that is almost heart-breaking to page through.
...without judgement, we are left looking at our own emotional reflections, staring into faces
expressing all too familiar vulnerability, uncertainty, sadness, curiosity, love and tenderness."
Alissa Guzman,  HYPERALLERGIC

Lydia Panas' group portraiture...represented in this monograph suggests a
dark awkwardness that while not impermeable is haunting by way of an oblique subtlety.
Robert Birnbaum,   THE DAILY BEAST

"Exceptional portraiture that is evocative, compelling, timeless.  Each image gradually peels the layers of psyches belonging
to family members and friends in her life.  This is a treasure of a book.     Susan Burnstine, Artist, Columnist
