Loft Law: Photographs by Joshua Charow

Buzz Spector, The Brooklyn Rail, 4 Jun 2024

Loft Law: Photographs by Joshua Charow is reviewed in The Brooklyn Rail by Buzz Spector. 

 

"The stillness of the archival pigment prints allows for continuing scrutiny, as distinct from the frequent one-second cuts Charow uses in his videos. This is a shrinking community of artists, all of whom have occupied their loft spaces for as long as sixty years. The law that undergirds the lives they live will expire once the last of them have passed away ... Charow could have focused even more directly on the attributes of portraiture, but he brings forth another aspect of his attentiveness in the ways he documents the stuff in these spaces."
