Joël Tettamanti commandeers the compass

CAMBRIDGE — “Compass Points” is a good title for Joël Tettamanti’s photography show, which runs at the MIT Museum through Aug. 31. It includes landscapes or cityscapes from Greenland, Iceland, Israel, South Korea, China, Luxembourg, Niger, Vietnam, Greece, Togo, and French Polynesia. He doesn’t so much box the compass as commandeer it.

“Compass Points” could also serve as title for a Tettamanti biography. Born in in 1977, in Cameroon, he was raised in Lesotho and Switzerland, worked in Paris, and now lives in Switzerland again. His considerable experience of the diversity of place informs “Compass Points” to absorbing effect.
