Although he’s not the exhibition circuit’s best-known artist, James Casebere may be the best setup photographer working anywhere—and his recent pictures of towns, mosques, and amphitheaters are some of his most impressive yet. Casebere constructs almost monochrome, table-size models, bathes them in a blanched-out light, then shoots them. These bombed-out Middle Eastern temples and quiet hilltop villages radiate a somber, stately stillness, and speak of war in ways that are both intimate and profound.
