Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing the show, as well as getting a glimpse at Philip-Lorca diCorcia's new retrospective-ish book, Thousand, at a presentation at David Zwirner December 12. I haven't received a review copy yet (*cough cough*) but it looks/sounds intriguing. And if I was in L.A., I'd be heading over to M+B for the Alison Jackson show December 15. Jackson's witty photographs use doppelgangers of famous people (and in this case the president) to recreate "paparazzi" shots much more shocking than the grist of today's burgeoning celebrity mill. I initially reacted badly to the camp of these photos, but they've grown on me, and I now find them genuinely funny (rarer than you might think) and also fundamentally unsettling (which, it seems, I'm into).
