Two by two
Katrina Umber's current show at Charlie James Gallery is called "And" because every photograph is paired or superimposed on another. Those in her Included Middle series include that black strip that appears between frames on a strip of negatives; you see two sequential images on either side of it. There's a spot of afternoon light on a hardwood floor shown twice, the shadows slightly different in each, and there's a dog on a couch next to the image of a weathered, decorated leather jacket in a closet. Paired in this way, the images become more brief stories than captured moments. 975 Chung King Road; through Aug. 31. (213) 687-0844, charliejamesgallery.com.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: July 27. Continues through Aug. 31, 2013
