Review: Adou at Pace/MacGill

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, January 28, 2009
Updated: Tuesday, January 14, 2014

The Chinese photographer Adou makes his American début with haunting pictures taken in a remote and barren area of Sichuan province.

There are echoes here of Curtis's early-twentieth-century sepia studies of Native Americans, but a mood of desolation prevails. The use of expired film results in mottled, slightly foggy prints, the largest of which are creamy beige and well suited to the works' timeless aura. A girl perches in the cleft of a young tree; a boy chews a piece of meat; a man brings a goose to market. Adou's intensely focused attention gives these ordinary moments extraordinary weight.
