"One shot at a time, McCready has captured everything from Pearl Jam's increasingly bigger crowds to his ever-changing hair color and growing family... But the photos also allowed a certain intimacy... and are artful, like the silhouette of McCready raising the 12th Man flag atop the Space Needle. The Duomo di Milano and Stonehenge. There's a double-shot of McCready's daughter, Kaia, that could be hung in a museum." -The Seattle Times
