“an extraordinary series with the power of ancient sculpture”
- The Guardian (The Sleepers)
“conjures thoughts of human fragility and impermanence even if the sleepers have become heroic sculptures rising from a deep slumber”.
- The New Yorker (The Sleepers)
“Heyert's photographs…peek below the surface at the vibrant, living face beneath the mask of death."
- The New York Times (The Travelers)
“fortunately the desire to bury the idea of death is not yet universal, as Elizabeth Heyert’s beautiful, celebratory photographs show. [Her] year in a funeral home has resulted in the life-affirming celebration of a world between Heaven and Earth.”
- The Times London (The Travelers)
“Caught searching their own eyes and contemplating their physical forms, they reveal the private collision of who they are and who they want to be. This astonishing intimacy is almost hard to bear”.
- Brooklyn Rail (The Narcissists)
“a compelling, provocative, discomforting body of work. … an inquiry into why we consecrate our heroines only to crush them under the weight of our demands for perfection”.
- Medium (The Idol)
