    "vibrant, engaged, surreal, quirky, humorous, brave, provocative. sgoralnick's photography rocks because she is not just an keen observer or a kickass documentarian of her awesome life, she is a full on participant in the wonderful wackiness that seems to swirl around her and her super cool friends. i got to meet her this year at burningman, which of course is the best place on earth to meet someone like steph."

    "sgoralnick takes some incredible photos and I always find inspiration after viewing her sets. Her skills with a camera are extraordinary. I regularly check her photostream (daily) and always come away with new ideas and an interesting take on her world."

    "sgoralnick creates stories. Stories that are like movies, where you want to see what is going to happen next. where will she visit next? what kind of themes party will she throw or go to next? When I look at her photostream I want to go hang out with her and walk through the subway in my underwear."

    "can't believe i am the second to write a testimonial for this young lady. sgoralnick is as awesome as her name is unpronounceable.
    wit, good equipment, skill, and a bunch of willing friends are a great combo for this smashing greenpointian."

    "can't be leave i am the first to write a testimonial for this young lady. sgoralnick leads a very interesting life weather its big monster battles or street pillow fights or the Idiotarod race she goes to every crazy thing happing in the NY state it seems and always comes back with good shots. also has implacable taste in music. the only down side is that she only just saw the worriers for the first time in august 2006 after living in NY for a little while. SLACK!"
