Sharon Harper, Shifting Views & Joni Sternbach, The Passengers @ Rick Wester Fine Art

Somewhere between Sharon Harper’s empty formal pictures of skies? water? and maybe just plain abstractions and Joni Sternbach’s documentary pictures of people riding the subways in the 70’s, is photography I enjoy. Its like RWFA is looking to go a step past Szarkowski’s Mirror and Windows into work that has too little and maybe too much going on in it. The exhibitions show two opposing poles of photography, the kind of thing that leave people with the impression that photography is either a lesser form of painting or something that would run next to a story on rising crime rates.

Through Oct. 25th
