Snapshot #1: San Jose Museum of Art

This dispatch innaugurates an occasional series of cross-sections through contemporary photography, which is far too broad to tackle as a whole — though I tried a couple years ago for a presentation. Because I’m lazy busy and inherently unfocused, I’m going to let other people do the work of slicing through the contemporary art photography world and share their results, neatly digested here.

Recently I visited the San Jose Museum of Art, which displayed photographs from the following artists:


Todd Hido


Susan Felter


Larry Sultan


Amanda Marchand


Edward Burtynsky


Richard Misrach


Michael Wolf


Binh Danh


Kimberly Austin


Vic Muniz


Lewis Baltz


Stéphane Couturier

    I really like Burtynsky. He’s everywhere these days.

    Michael Wolf’s photographs are truly something to behold in real life. From across the room, they look almost minimalist; but the closer you get, the more amazing they become. It’s not just the detail, but for me, it was the overwhelming realization of how many people there are in Hong Kong and the other cities he photographed. Well, here I am gushing like a schoolgirl.

    p.s. – Thanks for the cure for monkeypox. I’m almost over it.
