Josef Koudelka, 12 Panoramas 1987-2012 @ Pace / MacGill Gallery

This could be the best edit of Koudelka’s panoramas I’ve ever seen, and it almost makes me not hate the format. The locations and how he has photographed them certainly create an otherworldly place right out of a very depressing Fellini movie. But I still have a hard time with the panoramic frame, which somehow makes the images feel a little cheap. Now that I think about it, that is a real testament to Lois Conner’s ability to use such an unforgiving format and produce quality work.

Through Feb. 14th
