Hey, Hot Shot! 2009 Second Edition is an exhibition at the Jen Bekman Gallery featuring fifteen works from five photographers: Marisa Aragona, Leah Tepper Byrne, Alejandro Cartagena, Jessica Eaton, and Justin James King. Mexican suburban development is the focus of work by Cartagena where shiny sprawl cuts a swathe through the landscape. Our perception of landscape is what drives Justin James King to avoid the usual archetypes. And Byrne takes a look at The Children's Village, a residential treatment centre and alternative-to-incarceration site where the boys there are "caught in the middle in more ways than one; they are neither free nor in jail, no longer children but not quite adults." A fine and varied collection of work.
Hey, Hot Shot! runs through March 20, 2010 at Jen Bekman Gallery in new York.
