The New Yorker reviews JESSICA TODD HARPER's New York show:
Rick Wester Fine Art, 526 West 26th Street #417, New York, NY 10001
"This young mother of three photographs herself and her extended family at home, exploring motherhood, childhood, and intimacy in color pictures that feel more staged than spontaneous. Though the territory is familiar (Tina Barney, Sally Mann, and Elinor Carucci come to mind), Harper's approach is quietly assured, and she has a sharp eye for the cozy details of domesticity. There are no tantrums or tensions here; Harper is interested in comfort and pleasure-and in the play of light in her handsomely appointed interiors. If you're looking for gritty realism, go elsewhere. Through Jan. 10."
