An Afternoon in Chelsea

3. ARI MARCOPOULOS, LEIGH LEDARE, J. H. ENGSTRÖM
Cohan and Leslie

Through May 5
An intriguing trio of loosely autobiographical photographers. Engström, a former assistant to Mario Testino, gives scenes of working-class Swedish life the pale glamour of Victoriana. Marcopoulos’s wall of date-stamped snapshots from a California vacation have the dizzying, attention-deficit appeal of his well-known photographs of snowboarders and the Beastie Boys. Current Columbia M.F.A. student Ledare is the only one who really gets under our skin; his photographs of his mother, a former ballet dancer with a seedy side, eroticize the body even as they reveal its frailty.
