Sprecher and Salinas also take on expectations with a bit of wit, focusing their lens at Switzerland and its noted blend of natural and manmade balance. They attack the stories of experience with a gentle, but sharp, tug at the hem of convention's garment: an idyllic mountain scene is interrupted by two hikers, rolling hills are sliced by a line of parked cars, and almost out of crop — a couple kissing. White glacier walls are attacked not by a rugged climber, but a lone walker who seems quite out of his element. Their targets are many, ranging from candid tourist photography to professional tourism-orientated photo spreads. But these are just the obvious topics, the joke is foremost a private one. If you get it, good. If not, find something in the picture to look at. The caveat of all seven exhibits might be: Be generous to the works, bring something to the show. If you do, you'll offer generosity to yourself.
