Magdalena Kröner’s review of Ted Partin: Eyes Look Through You at Museum Haus Esters, Krefeld, Germany in Frieze Magazine:

Each subject of these seemingly documentary portraits becomes an active co-creator of their own staged scene. The tension between formal composition, self-presentation and the viewer’s curiosity gives these photographs an ambivalent intimacy in which the contrived and the authentic can no longer be told apart.
