Bar Mitzvah dances, trick-or-treating on autumn tree-lined streets, soccer games, and afternoons in the backyard. Neo-feminist photographer Melissa Ann Pinney captures the stuff of suburban childhood, the passage out of girlhood and the quiet moments of youth. The images evoke moments from one’s own childhood, the solemn moments, introspection, and relationships experienced on the path to adulthood almost forgotten.
Pinney’s display of recent work at the Alan Klotz gallery, 511 W. 25th Street, NY, has three days left. If you aren’t convinced of why you should go, read the Chelsea Art Galleries review. It made me want to make the trip after work today.
(Gallery hours are Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 6pm. Pictured above is Emma at the Mirror)
