The Steven Kasher gallery is presenting a selection from the Bruce Berman collection, and has transformed its severe walls into a more intimate space for the occasion. The display is dense and irregular, with up to three images stacked on top of each other to create a harmonious maze of wood, formats, colors and black and whites.
The images move from a cold architectural atmosphere to political street photography. There is no break in the rhythm of the sequence of images. A cold and abandoned building by Mitch Epstein is followed by a Christian Patterson photograph of a building with the same bricks and a large neon sign hanging over it, which is followed in turn by a parade of urban typographies by John Humble and Aaron Siskind, among others.
