Through Nov. 1
This group exhibition takes a sweeping breath to include the work of sixteen artists: Martin Brading, Kevin Bubriski, Gauri Gill, Sunil Gupta, Bhupendra Karia, Nandita Raman, Jungjin Lee, Annu Palakunnathu Matthew, Derry Moore, Osamu James Nakagawa, Katsumi Omura, Beatrice Pediconi, Raghubir Singh, Alex Webb, Rebecca Norris Webb, and Masao Yamamoto. Together the selections engage the photographic operation of framing. Photographers capture the world in rectangular or square viewfinders to bring us one reflection of "reality" at a time. The images offer not only a surprising thematic harmony, but become a reflection on the photographic method itself.
The premise isn’t too promising, but, at its best, this show of photographs composed as frames-within-a-frame is ravishing. The gallery’s non-Western emphasis lands viewers in some fascinating places, seen intimately by photographers who are insiders, not tourists, including Raghubir Singh, in India, and Masao Yamamoto, in Japan. In one of Nandita Raman’s excellent pictures, a group of men milling about is seen in soft focus through the cracked Plexiglas partition of a movie-house ticket booth—a dreamy apparition. - New Yorker Review.
