There is a kind of alchemy at work in Adam Fuss’s cameraless photographs and daguerreotypes, currently on view at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. One thing becomes another, and the simplest of subjects - concentric circles of light, drops of water, the silhouette of an infant, a delicate christening gown - are transformed into rich universal symbols. Bring a quiet mind - these images demand a certain amount of contemplation. Through January 12.
