Richard Edson's pictures are close-ups of toys, shot with incredible attention to lighting, background, color, context, and focal points. The show will be running until April 5, so if you don't make the opening, you've still got time to check out the work.

Here's Edson discussing the exhibit:

“When I looked at these simple figures through the macro lens I was impressed by the seeming depth and humanity. It didn't seem possible, but the more I looked the greater the illusion became. They seem like repositories of secret emotion and feelings. But then the more I thought about it the more sense it made. They were imagined and created and worked on by human beings and something remarkable and human was transferred.”
