If you're in Los Angeles try and catch Portraits, the new work of photographer Arne Svenson at Western Project gallery. Svenson spent three years researching and photographing forensic facial reconstruction sculptures. The images are attempts at reconstructing identities; when you look at them it's hard not to think about the people they represent, their lives, and what terrible fate they met. The show closes October 8th. Additional images can be seen here.
