I sat in an open white room at the Museum of Modern Art with over two hundred people, all of whom had been waiting for Jérôme Bel’s The Show Must Go On to begin. All of a sudden “Come Together” by the Beatles started playing through the speakers on the side while people from the crowd took to the stage.

A Photograph from Grey Villet's exhibit at the ICP
"Covered" by Anna Shteynshleyger
At the International Center of Photography there were three photographs in particular that made an impact on me. Two of the photographs were taken by Anna Shteynshleyger and the other one was taken by Grey Villet.
The first picture named Covered by Shteynshleyger looked plain until you took a closer look. A girl stood in front of a grey background with her back mostly to the camera. The whole thing almost looked staged but you still got a feeling of vulnerability. The girl wasn’t perfect, She had zits on her back and her hair cut looked messy but yet she stood there as if she was perfect.
