William Messer, the curator of Iris BookCafe and Gallery's photography shows, follows up his excellent display of work by Czech photographer Hana Jakrlovå
with a new one devoted to Danielle Voirin, who grew up in Chicago but is Paris-based. The show FEMME
features 33 prints from three series — des Collages
, featuring collage-like studio images that play on the French word “decollage” (to take off); Curiosity
, featuring work from a flip-book about a head-shaving experience; and Wakings
, a project of self-portraits made early in the morning.
This is her first solo show in the U.S. Through July 20. Iris BookCafe, 1331 Main St., Over-the-Rhine. 513-381-2665. Messer also will conduct a critique of photographers' work at 2 p.m. on April 8 at Iris, and will give the Iris Artist Talk on April 22 at 2 p.m.
