Robert Heinecken had a theory about why Jane Pauley and Bryant Gumbel, co-anchors on NBC's The Today Show in the 1980s, worked well together. Their faces were the same shape, and Gumbel looked good in Pauley's jewelry. He knew this because, in 1986, he photographed each of them on his TV screen, then superimposed their faces over one another. Sure enough, Gumbel's and Pauley's round faces fit together almost perfectly, and Pauley's earrings looked natural dangling from Gumbel's earlobes. The Gumbel-Pauley photos are on view at Marc Selwyn, in a show that includes other such experiments by the artist. 6222 Wilshire Blvd., Mid-Wilshire; through Saturday, Nov. 9.
