Thoughts: A very nice assortment of photographs from an all-female, international group of photographers. The works of each individual manage to stand on their own, a difficult feat considering how easy it is at photo shows to observe one moment and forget the next. Installation works well, too - clean space, but the arrangement is also not so tight as to forget that this is a show in the Mission (not a bad thing, of course).
