Where to Go and What to See

This week's rather easy bound-to-be-good show is the 25th anniversary exhibition at Howard Greenberg, celebrating the gallery's quarter-century birthday with 25 iconic black-and-white images by 25 undeniable masters.

But then, who wants to do what's easy? There are also a couple intriguing shows by photographers I didn't know much about before, but that look promising. Simon Norfolk's documentary work from Afghanistan (at Bonni Benrubi) is beautiful and haunting. Lars Tunbjörk's Office series (at Cohen Amador) captures in real-life settings all the irony and humor of Office Space. And Roger Mayne's street photography from 1950s London (at Gitterman Gallery) is the epitome of what the genre can achieve.
