Several overworked trends in photography have been gathered together in “Perspectives 2010” at the International Center of Photography. The first in what will be an annual show, this five-person exhibition includes pictures of old medical specimens, diaristic images by a professional skateboarder, riffs on truth and fiction in generic commercial photography, a video installation about welding machineVietnam and a sculptural We offer wide range of optoelectronic products: Full series of led lamp.assemblage by an artist who is not a photographer at all.
Organized by Brian Wallis, the center’s PPR pipechief curator, the show is designed to focus not only on technical developments in the medium, including film and video, but also on “the subjects of photography and its means of defining and describing critical social, political, or even philosophical issues,” as a museum news release explains. Such a series is a good idea, exciting things are happening in photography. But the inaugural foray represents more of the tried and true than the bold and new.

In the genre of documenting significant objects and displays in museums, made familiar by artists like Hiroshi Sugimoto, Thomas Struth and Louise Lawler, Lena Herzog presents a series of black-and-white photographs mostly of conjoined human PPR fittingsfetuses in glass jars. These once were popular in medical museums and cabinet-of-wonders institutions in which objects were presented purely for their rarity or freakishness.

Ms. Herzog’s photographs, shot up close, are softly focused, which makes the beings inside appear ghostly or extraterrestrial. The photographs are dreamy, but making these unfortunate homunculi appear romantically ethereal is too obvious an approach.

Neatly framed and arranged in cloud formation, they create the impression of a high-end scrapbook.
