Decoding Sarah Charlesworth’s Patricia Cawlings, Los Angeles at New York’s New Museum

Sarah Charlesworth spent her career exploring the tension between the precision of photo images and the ambiguity of the associated story. In this large and acclaimed survey show, the exemplar of this is a series of haunting newspaper images of individuals falling from buildings. “One knows there’s a human history which exists outside the image, and yet as photographs they are complete” Multiple images from this show are here.
