Charles Darwent from the Sunday Independent said the following about me, Sunday Independent: "The photographer Sandra Lousada was just out of her teens in 1961. Her father, a patron of the Tate, told her to go and shoot the show. The results, hung next to Light Red Over Black, evoke a time in English art now scarcely imaginable. Like John Hoyland, visitors to the Whitechapel seem stunned by the images in front of them – uncanny, soft-edged beauties like nothing they have seen before."
Laura Cumming said something very nice about the exhibition The Observer: "These may sound like technical footnotes but when you look at Sandra Lousada's terrific installation shots the total effect becomes apparent. Visitors are lost in the paintings. Men in sharp suits and girls in stilettos stand, lean, sit and even lie back among the works in attitudes of palpable reverie. Stance itself becomes eloquent."
The Telegraph's Judith Flanders said this about me, "The photographer Sandra Lousada spent hours viewing the viewers, and the results, which take up a wall of the current show, are extraordinary: a world of little old ladies (probably in their fifties, but who have visibly given themselves up to age) wearing hats, mingling with Beat students in drainpipe trousers and chunky jumpers. But the real interest is in how they engage with the Rothkos."
