With this trip to New York I only had time to visit one gallery. But it wasn’t hard to make a choice. Nobody has better photography than Yossi Milo.

The current show by Alessandra Sanguinetti, On the Sixth Day, is fantastic. Sanguinetti is the real deal. The prints (by Alberto Blum at Laumont), are killers. See this show.

  2. I totally agree with the comment of Flaneur. Her serie about Guille and Belinda witnesses, behind its formal qualities, a remarkable sense of narration. Maybe it is a bit naive but through her work and yours, Alec, a new kind of photographic narration seems to appear. Not a real narration with a beginning and an end but something like an infra-narration, that would not care anymore about the questions of objectivity and subjectivity, that would focus on poetic “correspondances” as Baudelaire defined in his poem of the same name ( Alec, what do you think about that point of view?
