The photographs Motoyuki Daifu took of his family in the tiny Tokyo apartment they all share comprise the debut show at Little Big Man Gallery downtown. The photos are fantastically colorful and casual, like candid shots taken by someone who's a bit more composition-conscious than famously gritty Nan Goldin, far more excited by clutter but no more interested in polish. One photo shows an endless pile of clothes; one has a boy with a bag on his head almost blending into his messy kitchen table surroundings. Daifu calls this series called My Family is a Pubis, so I cover it in Pretty Panties, a slightly gross, quirkily poetic, perfectly suited title. 801 Mateo St., dwntwn.; through Aug. 31.
