New York Times - This Stage of Motherhood

March 2003 review in the New York Times.

GAIL ALBERT-HALABAN, ''About Thirty,'' Ariel Meyerowitz, 120 11th Avenue, at 20th Street, (212) 414-2770 (through April 12). Like Tina Barney and Nan Goldin, Ms. Albert-Halaban uses her camera like an anthropologist. The expertly made pictures here focus on the domestic and recreational lives of West Coast career women, all in their 30's. Shopping for shoes, comparing diamond rings, doing yoga exercises, tending their children, her subjects visibly enjoy the privileges of their class, yet one senses throughout the series a certain anxious ennui (Johnson).
