Where to buy ... Hiroshi Watanabe

The Edelman Gallery's display of photographs by Hiroshi Watanabe features kabuki peformers, macaque monkeys, and street scenes.

Edelman GalleryChicago

This exhibit unites photographs from recent series by Hiroshi Watanabe. Most are portraits—some of kabuki performers, others of traditional Japanese performing macaque monkeys. But the most memorable images are street scenes in which no faces are visible. In many, shadowy forms can be glimpsed behind translucent screens—through a window of a barbershop in Tokyo, beneath a sheet in an Indian market, or looking up through a glass-block floor in Barcelona. In others, what haunts is the absence of life and activity, as in a nearly deserted Santa Monica Pier (2000). 300 W. Superior St., (312) 266-2350. Sept. 11 through Oct. 31. Prices range from $1,000 to $5,000.
