In this sensitively curated group show, the most basic elements of black-and-white photography are also the subtlest. The approaches and the materials are radically different, but nearly all the works edge into abstraction.
Among the standouts are Go Sugimoto's white-on-white images of curled or floating paper, as evanescent as breath on glass. Michelle Kloehn's tintypes are more substantial, but their subjects are mysterious—equal parts science and magic. Working with antique glass-plate negatives of astronomical phenomena (eclipses, exploding galaxies, shooting stars), Linda Connor conjures deep space as an astonishing dreamscape of diamond dust and rings of fire.From The New Yorker.
