Here are some quotes about Mary’s work:
“Mary, you make shit shine”. ~Mick Thomas, Weddings Parties, Anything.
“Great pics. Real. Emotion grabbing photos that yank you and crank you right to the spot. The scene of the crime. Are you really there? It sure feels like it.” ~Steve Poltz, singer-songwriter.
“Mary doesn’t take pictures, she ‘plays’ the Camera. It’s as if she’s playing the drums, snapping away in rhythm with her subject. Total rapport” ~Danny Farrant, drummer, The Buzzcocks.
