They'd been divorced five years when artist Leigh Ledare invited his ex-wife, Meghan Ledare Fedderly, to spend a weekend with him in upstate New York. She agreed but, in the time between the invitation and the vacation, remarried. She still came, and Ledare shot 1,100 photos, mostly of her. A month later, he invited his ex to take her new husband to the same upstate cabin. The new husband, commercial photographer Adam Fedderly, shot a few hundred pictures, too. Ledare's and Fedderly's photos, now part of a project called "Double Bind," hang side by side in Ledare's self-titled show at the Box in Little Tokyo, the former's in black frames and the latter's in white. At first, Ledare's images seem jaded and Fedderly's more hopeful, but it quickly becomes difficult to tell where one husband ends and the other begins. 805 Traction Ave.; through April 21.
