Amy Arbus: when camera collides with canvas

WINCHESTER — During the ’80s, Amy Arbus had a weekly feature, On the Street, in The Village Voice. She’d photograph some particularly exotic- or stylish-looking New Yorker encountered on a Manhattan sidewalk. The photographs in “After Images” might be seen as an extension of those poses struck and roles played. Except this would be called On the Wall: The poses struck and roles played are ones found in famous paintings by the likes of Picasso, Balthus, Modigliani, and Courbet.

“After Images” runs through June 2 at the Griffin Museum of Photography, in Winchester, as do two other shows: Stephan Sagmiller’s “The Clouds: Experiments in Perception” and Elin Hoyland’s “The Brothers.”
