At 18, Buffalo photographer Alex Currie has already built an impressive portfolio. His otherworldly portraits of himself and others, alternately sunlit and shadow-drenched, depict cinematic scenes featuring solitary characters in the middle of lonely journeys. Each one is a miniature story that seems to have been lifted from some long-lost fairy tale: a rain-jacketed figur…

Starting Friday at CEPA Gallery (617 Main St.), you can choose your own adventure: a walk into the untamed forests of North America; an exploration of the strange dynamics of new friendships; or a tour through the contested landscape of modern-day Ukraine.

Even the visitor center has a few prints to show off on its walls. Curated by Robert Hirsch, the massive, absorbing exhibit chronicles the techniques and…

Buffalo's grain elevators, subjects of so much recent art and activity, serve as static symbols of an impossibly grand past and empty vessels waiting to be filled with the bold ideas of a new century. But unlike many artists for whom the symbolic nature of the grain silos takes precedence over their original function, photographer Gene Witkowski is more interested in the a…
