Review: "Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Celebration" at Laurence Miller Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, February 3, 2009
Updated: Monday, January 13, 2014

One of the city's longest-running photography galleries salutes itself.

Two of the gallery's prime attractions, Helen Levitt and Ray K. Metzker, open the show with a pair of quiet knockouts that slip between representation and abstraction. They have strong support from Michael Spano, Stephane Couturier, Val Telberg, and other reliable Miller mainstays, but what keeps the show popping is a few surprises from the inventory, including a Polaroid of the shape-shifter Yasumasa Morimura as Greta Garbo, Bruce Wrighton's unexpectedly lovely color shot of a public bathroom, and Yasuhiro Ishimoto's heady evocation of the Playboy Club circa 1950.

From The New Yorker.
