Dodson's work cannot be considered portraiture in the traditional sense of the term... she isn't interested in quirks of personality so much as in creating a psychologically fraught ambiance. Indeed, the true subject of these photographs may be how space is transmuted by motion and light. How sure can we be of her figures for example, when they are often at the point of dissipating altogether? Simultaneously transient and immovable, Dodson's photographs reach a tenuous compromise between inhabited spaces and space as an entity unto itself. In doing so, they locate an oddly lyrical slant to the anomie that could be the hallmark of our age.   Mario Naves
