"What kind of genius is Rosamond Purcell? Is she an artist? A scholar? A documentarian? A living cabinet of wonders? Her originality defies category, as does her newest triumph, Egg & Nest. Crack its shell." -Jonathan Safran Foer "Rosamond Purcell is one of the great photographers. Egg & Nest is a summation of what she does best: collecting people, collecting things, collecting people collecting things, and creating something new and wonderful. Here she has magnificently returned to her most fascinating obsession, the repurposing of life as the purpose of life." -Errol Morris"
