"Marie Cosindas was introduced to photography rather casually. Her studio happened to be in the same building as one of Boston's first photography galleries, the Carl Siembab. She gradually became part of a circle of photographers that included Walter Chapell, Paul Caponigro, Nathan Lyons, and Minor White, and then took up photography herself... In 1961 she went to California to study with Ansel Adams in his studio workshop... But neither Adams nor any of the photographers who were ranked as fine artists in the 1960s worked in color... Marie Cosindas simply travels on into her fantasy of color, as if by astral projection. Sometimes I think the only supreme fantasists can have peace in this world. In any case they have their way. I have met Marie Cosindas, and I can testify to that. (Tom Wolfe).
