“Teetering between photojournalism and personal document (or Eugene Richards and Larry Clark), Dimmock’s color photographs of young drug addicts slowly self-destructing are harrowing and terrific. The thirty-eight small pictures here sketch out two separate but similar narratives, both of which began in a large Manhattan apartment that had been turned into a crash pad and shooting gallery. Dimmock spent three years with the squatters in that apartment, recording relationships as they flared up and sputtered out, and following several of the tenants after they landed on the street. Her subjects are often far from sympathetic, but her pictures are never judgmental and are full of feeling.
