She has lectured and exhibited her work throughout the United States, Canada, China, Europe, Australia, British Columbia, Africa, Guatemala, and Japan. Her photographic and book-works are included in the public collections of Eastman Museum; J. Paul Getty Museum; Smithsonian Special Collections; Minneapolis Institute of Art; Tokyo Photographic Art Museum; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Victoria and Albert National Art Library.
