The original prints I've seen are very beautiful. I saw the the 67  
show in New York; and as a 21 year old art student was quite blown  
away for all the reasons you state as well as the beauty of the  
prints. Don't know if she did her own printing - but who ever did  
them - did so masterfully. When I was teaching at Columbia College -  
Chicago I also had an opportunity to view some of her vintage prints  
at the Museum of Contemporary Photography and as a 50 something  
continued to view them as absolutely beautiful prints.
