"It’s an interesting time for the history of photography. The 'greats' are entrenched in the textbooks, but It feels like we’re searching for new heroes, late-career folks whose work bridges the gap between, say, Walker Evans and right now. Barbara Crane is one of those photographers."

That's Luke Strosnider on Barbara Crane, subject of a 60-year retrospective at the Chicago Cultural Center through January 10.

More at the Midwest Photographers Project, and listen to an interview with Crane at West and Clear. (h/t Ashley)
