Great Things I Have Seen - Margaret Durow

I saw this photo somewhere on the internet one day and immediately wanted to see more, and some e-rooting turned up a few websites showing Margaret Durow's work. There's such a great atmosphere to it and a lot of her other photos come from the same place. Or go to the same place.
Her black and white pieces are generally quite moody, contrasty scenes and her colour photos are filled with bursts and light leaks.
There's just something very comforting about them, an escapism. Her website's pretty great; simple and straightforward and easy on the text, the way a photo-site should be.
