The New York Times’ Critic Benjamin Genocchio wrote on March 5, 2009: “Among other outstanding photographs are Aimee Hertog’s wickedly funny ‘Hampton Fun v. Iowa Flood,’ in which the artist has digitally collaged imagery of people swimming in the Hamptons into flooded urban landscape scenes from Iowa. The juxtaposition is so incongruous and silly that you can’t help but laugh.” The article pertains to the show at City Without Walls in Newark.
