Carrie Yury

For all the exposed skin we see in Carrie Yury’s second photography show, one might expect to see some tits and ass, but nothing gives. Each portrait – for although we never see a face, these are clearly portraits and quite intimate ones at that – is a diptych: two photographs of the same body are spliced together to create a landscape of flesh, but the heads are always turned away, and while sometimes the two halves fashion a tantalizingly long, naked torso, the bottom half is always wearing panties. No question, you will wonder who these women are and how they live. These investigations into the female “nude” reveal nothing, but promise much (Sam Lee Gallery, Chinatown)
