It’s not a typical venue for a top-notch photography exhibition, but the storefront windows at Manhattan’s big midtown Barnes & Noble are currently host to an eye-popping display mounted by photographer Brian Oglesbee to publicize his new monograph, Aquatique (published by Insight Editions, and about $50 at discount). Sixth Avenue passers-by can see a sampling of Oglesbee’s spectacular large-scale silver prints of mysterious, watery black-and-white figure studies, created not with Photoshop but entirely in the studio.
