Dog Days of Bogotá by Alec Soth at MassArt

A revolver sits on a desk. Its presence there takes a moment to register, since the room has such a high ceiling and the wall behind the desk (which dominates the photograph you're looking at) is bare but for a clock and a small image of a saint.

Something strange is going on here - revolver? saint? - the strangest thing of all is the juxtaposition seems almost normal. This is the most remarkable aspect of the exhibition "Dog Days Bogotá by Alec Soth" at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design's Stephen D. Paine Gallery. Soth manages to make the Colombian city seem so familiar in its strangeness, and vice versa.
