First, a disclaimer: I suck at evaluating photography and have huge gaps in my knowledge of the history of photography. I can spot a Gursky when I see one, but that's about it.

That being said, I loved Paul Salveson's work in WYSIWG, the group show up at Jenny Jaskey Gallery right now. Obviously, I loved the fun little formal tricks in the work and I also loved the low-fi zine quality of the work. "WYSIWG" is kind of a nod to an era of 14.4baud modems, Windows 3.11, and dot matrix printers, so I thought that Salveson's work fit in perfectly with the title.
