    Review: Magical Photography Solos at Gildar, Rule Galleries
    "Bianca, Lamb, Citrus, Flowers, Milk," by Kristen Hatgi Sink, archival pigment print. Courtesy of Gildar Gallery Making magical depictions of the real world is an approach that's being widely embraced right now by contemporary conceptual photographers. I realized this after seeing two shows back-to-back that were each stocked with poetic, narratively strong and visually rich photos.
