|Together with Mark''s captions and introductory text, Falkland Road is an astonishing work of insight into a raw and frightening world, made accessible by the completeness of the photographer''s involvement, by her humanity, and by the way she captures the variety of individual life and the color, passion and tenderness that still abide there.|
