"Taken individually, one at a time, Plowden's pictures refresh the eye; they instruct, they remind, they warn, they engage us in a dialogue about the present state of our world. Cumulatively, they provide a memorable legacy of American imprints in their own right.”

​​— Alan Trachtenberg (from the the Beinecke Library website)
