Richard Ford, visiting professor of creative writing for the University of Mississippi Department of English, writes about art alumna Maude Schuyler Clay‘s new book, Mississippi History (Steidl), for The New Yorker (November 29, 2015):

“Clay’s photographs are especially human—in their subject matter, and in the photographer’s insistence that we be moved by art to look closely, and that photographs are good when they are as complex as we are.”
