Where to Go and What to See

~Miki Johnson

My easy pick for this week is the opening at the International Center of Photography of four exhibitions, on Susan Meiselas, Cornell Capa (who died this year), W. Eugene Smith, and American tintypes. ICP always puts up impressive shows, but especially tuned into photojournalism as I am since returning from Perpignan, I'm excited to see what they've found from these masters.

I'm also looking forward to seeing recent work from Dave Anderson, opening at ClampArt in NYC on Thursday. Anderson's first book, Rough Beauty, was one of our favorites, so I'm eager to see where he's gone from there.

And in Venice, California, a new environmentally minded gallery, G2, is putting up a retrospective of Robert Glenn Ketchum I wish I could see. The gallery "showcases nature photography by today's most gifted artists, and partners with local and international conservation and educational organizations, donating all proceeds to environmental charities." A cool idea, and a perfect match for Ketchum, who has built his career on pushing for environmental protection with his images.
