Odd(y) photographs at PhotoFusion

Went to see Jason Oddy's latest at PhotoFusion with Matej and Francesca. He looks at the use of space, particularly in socially extreme situations such as Guantanamo, the Pentagon and (here) a small town in New Mexico bought whole by the US counter-intelligence to train agents against Arab suicide bombers [sic]. The beautified decay common in these sorts of photos is amplified and modified by the weird knowledge that that very decay is essential to the town's utility as a training camp.
