"The Only Reality is the Photographic Reality"

At a time when reproducable visual culture dominates spheres of human communication, how does photography transform our relation to objects? In her recent still life work, Laura Letinsky has worked with images from food and lifestyle magazines, both confronting traditions of composition and engaging with the "substitute and fetish" magazine culture constitutes.

The MCA exhibition of Letinsky's photography is on view through April 17; her work is also featured in Feast, through June 10.
