I know little about photography, and abstract art isn't usually something I'm drawn to. But the handful of Siskind's b&w works showcased here are so evocative, so in love with texture and shape, that I couldn't help but be drawn in. Plus, the accompanying text is almost poetry, with the author describing one object by saying, "You seem to have known it for as long as you’ve known the palm of your hand."
