03 Photography:

an article by Miss Rosen, one of the small number of women photography critics… in it, i learn about Prince Street Girls, an iconic documentary work by Susan Meiselas… the reference to Meiselas gives the article footing in photographic history, some gravity, but the Zine being reviewed is a fashion Zine… Miss Rosen presents, but doesn’t critique the effort… since all proceeds from sales of the zine are to benefit a charity serving the neighborhood of the creators, one could imagine Miss Rosen writing the piece to promote a good cause… the zine itself lacks the compelling depth of Meiselas’ work… young womanhood as imagined by the fashion industry…
