New York’s Guggenheim Museum is hosting a mid-career retrospective of Rineke Dijkstra’s photography, fascinating in its take on the conventional portrait. The Dutch artist somehow manages to draw out the raw emotion — and subtlety — of her subjects, which range from teens at the beach to Portuguese bullfighters fresh from the ring. Her own self-portrait, taken poolside, reveals her own fatigue after swimming a rough 30 laps. Rineke’s exhibit, which runs till Oct. 8, is pure, unfiltered emotion.
