Dazzlingly inventive, hugely artificial and hyper-sophisticated fashion images by 40 photographers are plastered over the walls, floor to ceiling, in "Weird Beauty: Fashion Photography Now," the new exhibition filling the ground-floor galleries of the International Center of Photography. In a notably budget-conscious approach, curators Carol Squiers and Vince Aletti have used magazine tear-sheets rather than original prints (though the show does include 20 actual photos), as if surrendering to the reality that this kind of material is everywhere.
