Alison Rossiter At Yossi Milo, By Mara L.

Friday evening, I went to the opening of a show that I liked better than anything I’ve seen in Chelsea during the past couple of years: Alison Rossiter at Yossi Milo’s gallery.

Perhaps that’s an overstatement. Really, I should say that I liked it better than any photography show I saw recently here in Manhattan. Rossiter’s work is thoroughly modern, in a way that is shockingly rare. Here’s one of my favorites: Eastman Kodak Royal Bromide, expired March 1919, processed in 2010.
