Fragments: Photographs by Alex Salinas

Fragments, an exhibition of the work of Belgian photographer Alex Salinas, just opened at the Soho Grand gallery, where it will be on view through April 30. I first encountered Salinas' work in the 2006 issue of +1 Magazine, which included a series he staged at Saint Augustinus Hospital. The images combined orthopedic casts and other medical gear with corsets, implants, and intricate jewelry in ways which seemed to comment on the prosthetic body and alternative standards of beauty.
