Along with Lewis Baltz, Henry Wessel, and Robert Adams, Gohlke was one of the so-called New Topographics photographers whose cool, unsentimental images redefined the perception of the American landscape in the seventies.

This excellent exhibition provides a quick refresher course on his work since then, capped with a group of recent pictures taken on the streets of Queens. Gohlke's subjects—driveways, façades, intersections, shrubbery—are so ordinary that they practically repel attention. But the quotidian has its own weird power, and these photographs tap into it again and again. A scrawny tree and a street sign on an empty road are all Gohlke needs to hook and hold us. Through Aug. 22.
