From Loring Knoblauch’s review of “Talking Pictures: Camera-Phone Conversations at The Met” for Collector Daily:

The collaboration between Manjari Sharma and Irina Rozovsky is also bustling with activity, their pictures marching along with calendar-driven efficiency, each photographer contributing an image in succession each day. Shown as prints pinned to the wall, their pictures track their two parallel pregnancies, and the echoes of gestures, silhouettes, and rounded bellies found in their images confirm a heightened degree of awareness between the two – at that moment, their lives were on similar tracks, and their diaristic photographs reveal a feeling of deliberate and at times magical synchronicity. (As an aside, the artists who are photographers have a distinct advantage in this new world of photographic communicating, as they have already mastered the methods and techniques of effective photographic picture making – Sharma’s and Rozovsky’s photographs are much more formally controlled and exactingly executed than many of the more casual and improvisational images made by the other artists.)
