Square Deal

Joesph Alber's name is synonomous with his simple, attractive and energetic "Homage to the Sqaure" paintings. He made a boat load of them. Every once in a while though some of his photographs find their way into a gallery or museum show. The best place to see a lot of them at once is It's fun to see how he used some of the same devices for both groups of pictures. I love how narrative and cinematic the photographs are. They feel like small home movies. Personal and a little rough around the edges.
