New York photographer Joshua Lutz presents works from two series, "Meadowlands" and "AmStarDam."

The first, which sprang from Lutz's curiosity about labor leader Jimmy Hoffa's still unexplained disappearance, looks at the Jersey meadows, the vast stretch of New Jersey marshland familiar to anyone who has traveled between Manhattan and Newark Airport. Lutz never found Hoffa, but he did happen on a corpse, face down in the water, and recorded it with sober ambiguity in "Body" (2007).

"Body" nearly unbalances Lutz's show by forcefully reawakening qualms about the camera as, in some sense, a death-dealing instrument.
