For years a staff photographer on the Mexican tabloid La Prensa , Metinedes often rode to crime scenes with fire and ambulance crews and created strikingly composed images of car crashes, suicides and accident victims before the blood had stopped running. The work of Ponciano Flores Perez from , with text painted on each image describing the scene and the subjects, is fascinating, as is that of Hugo Brehme, an acclaimed landscape photographer who also documented the revolution with formal, studied compositions of the soldiers. Outside of the Mexican theme, The New York Times Magazine show, on display over two exhibition spaces, is a fascinating insight into how the photo stories are created at this most influential of publications. Various case studies of iconic stories from the last 25 years of the magazine are on show - tearsheets of the final printed story, the prints themselves, and documentation showing the often labyrinthine process to get to the final story, including contact sheets, story boards, emails, and faxes to subjects. The images are mysterious and not immediately apparent, but closer study reveals a strange sense of memory in the landscapes and spaces she documents. Shot by an outsider, these portraits could be somewhat crass and exploitative, but Cameroonian Nzudie takes frank, candid images that are honest and non-judgemental.

It has become a touchstone for those who seek to lay bare their lives with a camera.
