Syntax, a fine show curated by Leslie K. Brown, is an intelligent, well selected show of photographers working on the edge of the bubble using photography to often talk about photography. Luke Strosnider has his book of New Ansel Adams Landscapes which are the histograms of famous Adams landscapes presented to be viewed as reseen landscapes, they are quite wonderful. Benno Friedman challenges what a photograph should/might look like. These two plus seven other artists do challenge nicely. See the show at Photographic Resource Center (PRC) is at 832 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, MA.
Leslie has hit her stride with this and her reecent show at the Fruitlands Museum show. This lady is bright, inciteful and truly one to be watched, her work is of the highest order.
Bruce has his MFA Thesis show up at the Benton Museum on the UConn Campus in Storrs, CT and a fine show it is. 15 new 24×30 prints from 8×10 film of Fort Juniper made over the past six months. The one above is a particular favorite, a strong bit of seein. Additionally, The View Home, shown in a grid this time was shown and written about last year from his Gallery Kayafus show. Kudos.
