Where to Go and What to See

~Miki Johnson

This week, my top few picks are easy because they are shows by photographers or groups I'm simply a sucker for (mostly because they're consistently good): Candida Höfer at Sonnabend Gallery, Hey, Hot Shot! at Jen Bekman, and Manuel Alvarez Bravo at Rose Gallery in Santa Monica. Then there are two more that have been on my mind because we have their books in the office in anticipation of our Jan/Feb books issue: Lana Slezic's Forsaken and Richard Misrach's On The Beach. They are both stunning works, in very different ways, and worth checking out if you haven't. My list wraps up with a photographer I'm looking forward to learning more about (I'm also a sucker for old Life shooters, fyi), Andreas Feininger at the Scandinavia House.
