5 to See: This Weekend

This weekend’s selection navigates private and public worlds, demonstrating the power of photography to communicate ideas of home, freedom and the American Dream.

Elina Brotherus: It’s Not Me, It’s A Photograph, Kunst Haus Wien, Vienna

Looking to icons of 19th and 20th century painting for inspiration, Brotherus’ (b. 1972) autobiographical images and films explores landscape and portraiture through a distinctive formal style and aesthetic sensibility. Until 19 August.

Henry Wessel: Still Photographs, Galerie Zander, Cologne

This diverse show captures life in the US from 1960-1990, recording the idiosyncrasies and humour found in the everyday. From Californian deserts to beach culture, the works are steeped in American mythos. Until 25 August.

Welcome to Camp America: Inside Guantánamo Bay, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center

Conceptual and documentary artist Cornwall (b. 1973) investigates the human experiences of prisoners and guards inside Guantánamo Bay, recording residential and leisure spaces with a critical eye. Until 25 August.

Pairs, Pace/MacGill, New York

Bringing together celebrated works by the likes of Diane Arbus, Yto Barrada, Robert Frank, Paul Graham, Richard Misrach, Kiki Smith and Garry Winogrand, this exhibition explores the uncanny concept of the double. Until 22 August.

Stefanie Moshammer: Therese, Westlicht, Vienna

In this most recent series, Moshammer (b. 1988) returns to her native country of Austria. The deeply personal body of work examines the notion of home, recreating poignant locations through an interplay of colours and textures. Until 19 August.
