In an e--mail promoting his latest solo exhibition, photographer Jason Horowitz wondered whether billing the show as a “mini--retrospective” means he’s getting old. Either way, his work certainly isn’t.
From Horowitz’s more reportorial black--and--white images of the 1980s to his later, lurid color works ---- which include giant close--ups of body parts ---- Horowitz’s image--making has stayed fresh and vital. Two photos from his series of drag--queen portraits were recently selected for the Washington Project for the Arts’ “Select 2014” auction, which closes Saturday.
Organized by Curator’s Office ---- which vacated its Logan Circle space last year for an ongoing residency at Studio 1469 ---- “Closer and Closer” opens Friday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.
