Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
If you are a fan of the novel Wuthering Heights, then you’ve imagined the Gothic landscape upon which Catherine and Heathcliff’s tortured relationship played out. You can see if your imagination syncs with reality in Sam Taylor-Wood’s “Ghosts” photo exhibit, on view at the Brooklyn Museum of Art this fall.
