photography… A barrel of laughs it's not. But the new photography book Architecture of Authority, collected work of Richard Ross, certainly captures the zeitgeist. Ross seems to have been able to get images from every fraught environment imaginable, including an interrogation room at Guantanamo, cells at Abu Ghraib, a confessional, and the Iraqi National Assembly Hall. Extremely compelling stuff. Mr. Ross will be giving a talk and signing books on Tuesday, September 25, 6:30pm, at Aperture, 547 W. 27th [10th/11th] 212.505.5555, which published the book.
