T+L Reports: Keeping it Real

"Reality" has been photography's bugaboo for at least a century now—something to be captured, charmed onto paper, challenged. "Cruel and Tender" at London's Tate Modern (June 5-September 7) is a giant of a show that tracks realism and its discontents: August Sander and his archetypal faces; classic portraits by Walker Evans; Philip-Lorca diCorcia's posed urban scenes. Also opening this month are two shows of lesser-known photographers from the high-Modernist period. Cubistic factory shots by Charles Sheeler hang next to his more painterly abstractions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (June 3- August 17); at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (June 14-September 7), images by Louis Faurer show that city's street life of more than 50 years ago.
