Hanford, Washington, produced the plutonium that powered the atomic bomb, and Bootsy Holler, the photographer. For the last decade, Holler has been getting a photographic handle on her connections with where and whom she's from. This exhibition, Nuclear Family, is a trilogy of sorts. There are pictures of her grandfather's home, where he holed up after her grandmother died but didn't move a thing; pictures of the austere Eastern Washington landscape of Hanford itself; and pictures of her mother and grandmother, with herself inserted. In the Photoshopped images, Holler wedges herself into the puzzle of her family—she's the one in the wig. Being part of a family can often feel like being the one in the wig. JEN GRAVES
