"While Lange considers her photographic work to be far removed from her film career, the pictures produced do have an appropriately cinematic quality to them. Her images of Mexico, demonstrated in Mexico (24) and Mexico (26) swell with a quiet stillness, a sense of arrested time. In Mexico (26) a dog peers over the roof of a building like a gargoyle, teeth gleaming white against its shadowy face. Power lines intersect, bisecting the sky and further framing the scene. Despite the murky shadows, a string of Christmas lights is clearly articulated against the rough stone of the building."
