People Watching

Thomas Struth Heritage 2 St. PetersburgHere's your chance to stare at people and never get caught. At Marian Goodman gallery, Thomas Struth's photographs of museum-goers looking at masterpieces celebrate both the people who love art and those who couldn't care less. It's hard to tear your gaze away from these folks at The Prado and Hermitage museums. My favorite images are the ones that featured teens who are far more interested in checking each other out than any stupid old painting on the wall. As well, I love the photos of overexcited tour guides explaining the masterpieces. (Images via Marian Goodman gallery)
