T+L Reports: Foreign Matter

"Strangers," the first triennial at New York's International Center of Photography, looks at places and people you thought you knew and those you didn't even know existed—both seem equally unfamiliar. Capturing the anonymity of urban life, Swiss artist Beat Streuli surreptitiously snapped portraits of city dwellers from around the world and arranged them into a large-scale frieze. French Magnum photojournalist Luc Delahaye visited a Palestinian refugee camp and came back with a four-by-eight-foot image that recalls the history paintings of David and Delacroix. Joel Sternfeld, best known for his awkwardly beautiful American landscapes, also turns to global politics with images of G8 Summit protesters in Genoa, while Justine Kurland documents utopians living off the grid in rural American communities. With more than 40 artists from a dozen countries —Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Shirin Neshat, and Krzysztof Wodiczko share the limelight with up-and-comers such as Mexican Yoshua Okon—"Strangers" presents the latest takes on our brave new world (September 12-November 30).
