Linear Digression

Traditional photography has generally sought to capture a discrete moment in time—the emblematic slice of life’s linear progression that is the metaphorical fly trapped in amber, the ever-retreating present distilled and incarnate. At the Center for Photography at Woodstock this month, executive director and curator Ariel Shanberg has brought together five photographers who upend that tendency, seeking to chronicle the passage of time, rather than one static second. “Time Tracers” features the work of Junsik Shin, Mark Klett, Blake Fitch, Chris McCaw, and Rebecca Cummins through December 16. Also at CPW through the middle of the month, a solo show by Dulce Pinzón, “The Real Story of the Superheroes.” Pinzón documents the lives of Mexican immigrant workers, the unsung “heroes” who make great sacrifices on a daily basis to support families in both the US and in Mexico.

    Growing up in Queens, Carolita Johnson was oblivious to everything. Politics existed in the periphery, and drawing was a hobby best executed in Bic pen on computer paper. Now she's a cartoonist who regularly publishes in the New Yorker.
