A photo by Max Kozloff in the center of this series is astonishing. A young Jamaican girl slouches in a gold woven chair set against a palm background. Her head rests against her couched elbow and she gazes just left of the cameras 3ye, much like how I look at someone without looking at them. Someone next to her sees or decides to acknowledge the camera. A young child reaches for something in a middle aged mans hands. The series reminds me of an artist Osiris. The color palate is rich, the light is even, and the artist has not inserted himself into the details. V good.
