"In another gallery, the curators hang Strand’s quasi-abstract close-ups of his beloved Akeley motion picture camera next to his sensuous portraits of his first wife, Rebecca Salsbury, which evoke Stieglitz’s shots of Georgia O’Keeffe. The pairing neatly expresses Strand’s emotional and intuitive relationship to an art form associated with all things mechanical; in his 1922 essay “Photography and the New God,” he wrote about humanizing 'God the machine,' 'lest it in turn dehumanize us.'" -The New York Times
