Joann Verburg at Pace MacGill

Verburg's color photographs of the Italian town of Spoleto are not the views of a tourist. She's so familiar with these narrow passages, painted plaster walls, and bricked-up archways that her pictures feel intimate, loving.

She glides past spots in a haze of pleasure and remembrance, allowing areas of her pictures to slip out of focus, as if in a swoon or a daydream. Seen through her eyes, the town is a marvellous maze, empty save for the almost palpable presence of the photographer's avid eye.

Three small head shots of people on the street stand in for the otherwise absent population, but you almost resent their intrusion on Verburg's reverie.

Read the complete review in The New Yorker.
