"Going against…art-historical tradition, Rubin has sought to show naked women in a way that blocks voyeurism and inspires respect. …It is risky but commendable to tackle deep issues about religious heritage, sexuality, and spiritual commitment in the serious way that Leah Lax and Janice Rubin have done in this work."
