Tuesday the 13th

Selections from two divergent publications of photography by Mary Ellen Mark are now on view at Fahey/Klein Gallery. “Falkland Road” features 15 disquieting dye transfer images from her published portfolio, “Falkland Road: Prostitutes of Bombay,” taken in the late 1970s and depicting the intimate lives of Bombay’s prostitutes, madams, transvestites and their children. In stark, black-and-white contrast, the gallery also presents “Twins,” Mark’s more lighthearted 2001 study of twins taking part in “The Twins Days Annual Festival” in Twinsburg, Ohio.

Through March 10. 148 N. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles. (323) 934-2250. ‘ TARGET=’_blank’>www.laopera.com.
