Within a block of each other on the Lower East Side, two photographers who dig into genres we thought we already knew — Heather Bennett uses self-portraiture to don various personas, Katherine Newbegin takes long exposures of empty interiors — manage to uncover fresh faces and new spaces. Here are images from both exhibitions - and read R. C. Baker's full review of them both here: "Photographic Fiction and Fact in the LES."
