Not that the new photos are without charm. Three shots by Nigerian-born J.D. 'Okhai Ojeikere document dramatic African hairstyles seen from behind, as if he were capturing sculpture. Japanese photographer Tokihiro Sato weighs in with a trio of gelatin silver prints of gnarled trees whose bases are festooned with tiny lights. Trained as a sculptor, Sato works with a large-format camera and uses exposures of up to three hours to get his ghostly effects.
There are also appealingly stark black-and-white prints by American scientist turned photographer David Goldes. Hole in Soap Bubble Film and Puddle are just what the titles describe, evoking, as the text aptly puts it, "a childlike sense of wonder about the physical world." Israeli-born Naomi Leshem contributes two vivid color portraits of sleeping youths. American photographer Lisa Kereszi, who once worked for Nan Goldin, creates abstracts from mundane subjects suchas a window shade and a door.
