    For the past twenty years, Wagner has been exploring the concepts of structure and order in an ongoing narrative that at times has addressed architecture, educational paradigms, and domestic arrangements. Cross Sections continues this exploration by moving towards the core of 'life': cellular replication. Historically, science and art have generally been collaborative arenas of endeavor; in the field of photography they are inextricably linked. These images, created over the past three years, were made using medical imaging devices.

    Constantine Manos' photographs are a fascinating confluence of disparate elements that combine into unique and complex images. Manos presents a kaleidoscopic cross-section of human interaction. In the traditions of Winogrand and Friedlander, these images reveal the disjointedness and absurdity often found in American culture, transforming the real into the surreal.

    The main highway, U.S. Route 17, that bisects South Carolina's 'lowcountry,' is being widened to accommodate commerce, tourists, and urban refugees.

    Forty years after Henry Horenstein began documenting the country music scene in and around Nashville, his deep love for the music and its people continues. Having spent a lifetime around performers and fans, he has been granted access to both the high-glamour backstage of the Grand Ole Opry in its heyday of the 1970s and the rough-and-tumble dive bars that carry on the tradition today.

    Lynn Saville photographs New York during the time of transition from daylight to night, the fleeting moments when natural light gives way to streetlight, moonlight, window light, and advertisement and surveillance lighting. Saville has sought out places that seem questionable—deserted factories, back alleys, the shadowy infrastructure of urban highways and bridges that suggest the city’s exoskeleton.

    The State of Ata adresses the social themes that define contemporary Turkey. Specifically examining the imagery of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the country’s revolutionary leader after WorldWar I, the volume interweaves photographs, interviews, artists’ interventions and archival imagery. The result is a complex visual exploration of the uses of Atatürk’s imagery and the way in which it functions in contemporary Turkish society as a perceived link to Western culture, and as a symbol in opposition to the rise of the Islamist political movement.
