"Photo Brut"
Shows of so-called vernacular photographs (found photos, ranging from family-album fare to police mugshots) have become a gallery staple of late, for a number of reasons, including the appeal of their accidental aesthetics and their frequent detours into the uncanny. This group show attempts to expand the category by giving it a snappy new label, and by offering up some bizarre images indeed—including a series of beauty-shop images showing only the backs of coiffed female heads; a cache of old Polaroids taken off television and featuring obscure performers whose names are carefully noted on the picture margins; and a 1940s backyard portrait of an otherwise unremarkable man whose erect penis is emerging from his trousers.
