‘Outstanding explorations of power and also intimate personal dramas: more dramatic than fiction while revealing the universal forces behind.’ The Times,January 2005
‘ Angus Macqueen has “a body of work which stands alongside the photography, say, of Josef Koudelka, the journalism of Neal Ascherson or the fiction of John Berger, in humanising our understanding of the changes that have affected those at the margins.’ Tim Adams, The London Observer, January 2003
