Where to Go and What to See

This week's exhibition with the most recognizable name is no doubt the Ken Heyman retrospective opening at Sundaram Tagore Gallery on Thursday. A prolific photographer (150 assignments for LIFE magazine) and author (of 54 books), Heyman is perhaps best known for his collaboration with the famous anthropologist Margaret Mead. But with lots of images with celebrities like Pablo Picasso, Marilyn Monroe, and Ernest Hemmingway, there should be a little something for everyone...especially considering this is Heyman's first major gallery show in a decade and promises "never before seen" photographs.

On a slightly more contemporary note, the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago presents This Land Is Your Land on Thursday, a survey of the American landscape through the eyes of young international photographers. Complimented with a talk on Friday from Simon Roberts (whose book Motherland on Russia I adore) and Bryan Zanisnik, the show illustrates how these artists "use current events, personal observations, and often humor to comment on the political, religious, and cultural climate of this country."
