Screen Shot 2015-08-25 at 2.08.07 PM

You can catch work from photographers Annette Kelm, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Demand, Roe Ethridge, Elad Lassry and more.Perfect Likeness: Photography and Composition showcases photographs of seemingly normal instances such as two boys boxing in their living room. But “since photography remains inextricably linked to representation, it remains to choose the subject.” Perfect Likeness shows portraits that, unlike its title, may not be exact representations and instead could explore a further explanation of the piece itself with “carefully composed photographic images.” (the Hammer’s site)
