"Photographer Eva Leitolf is not a cheeky observer. On the contrary, when she takes a picture, she does so discreetly. She waits until the moment of greatest intimacy has passed before releasing the shutter. With her, it's all about after-images, and that demands concentration and, above all, an inner assuredness in observation. Happier men watch birds, wrote Evelyn Waugh, but he, a less happy soul, watched people - from the sidelines. The same is true of Eva Leitolf: she observes from the sidelines, but without making us feel the restlessness that drove Waugh both to seek people out and to flee from them. ."
