What’s up at Boston-area art galleries

I love sifting through old family photos to find one snapped at the wrong moment. A pose might be off. Tensions may be read. Family snapshots are a training ground, a place where kids can learn to plaster on a mask to wear out in the world.

Cobi Moules, a specialist in self-portraiture, mines his family pictures in a show at Carroll and Sons. Reproducing the photos to scale in careful graphite drawings, Moules, a transgender artist, has done little to alter the images, except perhaps to give the girl he was a shorter haircut.
