Review: Debbie Fleming Caffery at Gitterman Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, June 09, 2009
Updated: Monday, January 13, 2014

Caffery's black-and-white photographs have always had an otherworldly cast—a sense that she's looking beyond the physical to something more ethereal.


"The Spirit & the Flesh," the title of her new book of pictures from Mexico, though applicable to all her work, is especially appropriate for this exhibition of pictures from the book, many of them taken in brothels. Caffery's prostitutes—earthy, voluptuous, naked—are sometimes masked, sometimes in shadow, but, no matter how gloomy the setting, they appear burnished, luminous. There are echoes here of Brassaï, Bellocq, and Bravo.
