Hello, New York: The Living And Dead
Hello, New York: The Living And Dead (Alien Buddha Press, 2020) is a black and white photography collection of New York cityscapes, urban textures, and pandemic self-portraits.
"If attention to detail is a love language, Hello, New York: The Living and Dead speaks it. Stoddard shoots straight, but always from a perspective of deep respect and reverence. Her New York is mighty yet weary, with sharp edges that don’t even attempt to hide their fraying. This collection of photography shows a strong yet quieter and more vulnerable version of the city, and its occasional self-portraits show the artist at home in her true home."
–Kim Vodicka, author of The Elvis Machine
"Hello, New York: The Living and the Dead is an examination of New York City as a city of contrasts. A city of openness that's also surrounded by chain link fences. A grounded city that rests under a surreal atmosphere. A city filled with progress but also filled with decaying structures all around. Stoddard's photography collection presents the city in all these forms and many more, creating a collection that's a time capsule of a continuously changing city, but one with more to discover the deeper you dig."
-Alex Carrigan, senior critic, Quail Bell Magazine
