What’s up in Boston-area art galleries

Harold E. “Doc” Edgerton’s photos fascinate because they show us what we don’t ordinarily see. Edgerton, who died in 1990, taught electrical engineering at MIT. He employed a stroboscopic flash to capture movement unfolding.

A playful show at Gallery Kayafas pairs Edgerton photos with those of contemporary photographer Matthew Gamber, who is likewise concerned with what our eyes don’t see. But instead of simply illustrating what we’ve missed, as Edgerton’s photos do, Gamber’s explore how our brains fill in the gaps.
