    Soth has said that this work "has something to do with passion and what is left after its inevitable demise...For me, Niagara is a kind of
    metaphor for passion (the falls) and the aftermath of passion (the
    surrounding region)". Letter to Philip Brookman, Niagara, Steidl, n.p. August 29, 2005.
