Atlantic Revisited : Photographs by Tim Wainwright 

Photography has been called the most democratic of all art forms because of its uniquely direct relationship with the world around us. For instance, British photographer Tim Wainwright is famous for his portraits, not only of notables such as Princess Diana and author John Grisham, but also of the impoverished slum dwellers of Bombay and the long-term mentally ill of London. He also has a more subtle side seen in his Palma show of "abstract" photographs made on both sides of the Atlantic between 1999 and 2004. Ranging from graphic close-ups of agricultural tools and unlikely views of London's Victoria Station to his even more unlikely, if not downright loopy, panoramas of buzzards swooping over the pre-fab landscapes of south Florida, Wainwright reveals that art is where you find it. -- D. Eric Bookhardt
