Brooklyn-born photographer Lorna Simpson‘s breathtaking new exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum is a combination of found photographs (straight from eBay), ink drawings and Simpson’s self-portraits. It sounds like a lot, but its brilliance lies in Simpson’s subtlety. We braved the snow to join the attractive audience at last night’s opening reception.
