Arrivals and Departures by Danish Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol at Yossi Milo Gallery chronicles two years of travels across the Asian continent on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Favouring places where the living is hard, Sobol alights mostly in rural communities throughout Russia, Mongolia and China where he records life on the streets, as well as meetings with strangers, many of whom seem happy to welcome him into their private lives. The high-contrast black and white images are harsh reflecting the grim environments in which his subjects fight to survive.

In 2007, Lindsay Morris began documenting a unique weekend summer camp for gender-nonconforming kids, their parents and siblings, which takes place every year in a different part of the United States. To coincide with the launch of an eponymous monograph, her show You Are You at ClampArt captures the joy of tweens and teens of both sexes, as they express themselves freely without fear of judgment or retribution. Morris’ heart-opening images are imprinted with the respect, understanding and affection that echo the aims of this groundbreaking albeit temporary haven.

 At the Robert Mann Gallery, Classic Works and Collaborations showcases the late German artist Ellen Auerbach’s work from the 1930s to the 1960s. Auerbach trained with avant-garde photo-artist Walter Peterhans at the Bauhaus School before founding the surrealist studio ringl+pit with Grete Stern. Fleeing Nazi Germany, Auerbach immigrated to the United States where she eventually formed an association with renowned photographer Eliot Porter. It wasn’t until the 1980s that Auerbach’s work emerged into the historical canon, with a major retrospective at the Akademie der Kunste in Berlin in 1998.
