Elaine Duigenan and Odette England
Micro Mundi / As Above So Below
Elaine Duigenan

At the Klompching Gallery in Dumbo two photographers, both oriented strongly to the natural world, are currently showing their work. Elaine Duigenan’s black and white studies of algae are the more interesting of the two. String-like forms resembling chromosomes inhabit a secret world revealed by the lens with satisfying exactitude. Done traditionally with a 4 by 5 view camera, her round compositions, mimicking the form of the microscope, offer the kind of detail rarely seen in this digital age. Odette England, whose work shares the gallery space, in a show entitled “As above So Below,” looks skyward in double exposures of land and cloud. Though less striking than Ms. Duigenan’s imagery, the two styles work well together and form a complementary pair. The show is certainly worth a look, and Ms. Duigenan’s perhaps yet another.
