Mary Lang's photographs frame familiar spaces such as backyards and parks in quiet moments that acknowledge the presence of inhabitants, but do not depict them. Lush shades of green dominate scenes that invite viewers to stand where she stood. We see evidence of games played and gardens maintained in images whose compositions communicate stillness and plenitude, and a hint of something magical.
