Katy Grannan Is Everywhere

During the month of January, Katy Grannan will be taking the photography world by storm with exhibitions opening in New York and in San Francisco. Both Salon 94 and the Greenberg Van Doren Gallery will be exhibiting Lady Into Water and Another Woman Who Died In Her Sleep respectively, two new bodies of work exploring:

"the uneasy relationship between fixed photographic portraiture and her subjects’ mercurial identities. The photographs are replete with ambiguity and contradiction: they are evidence of an invented, unknowable self, confronting undeniable, inescapable photographic description."

If you're in the San Francisco area, the Fraenkel Gallery just opened The Westerns, which comprises work from the two aforementioned projects.
