'If in our capacity as viewers, we could delve into the places from where digital photography has emerged, we would be much more suspicious of the images by which we are surrounded. It is this kind of critical distance from the body of photography that we can learn from the works of Corinna Holthusen. In them the past, present and even future of human portraiture are as one.'
