"Buoyancy," a thoughtful selection of work by the late James Fee (1949-2006), explores the photographer's longstanding attraction to water and the sea. In Fee's moody, mostly black and white images of boats, ships, docks, bridges, islands, marine life and bubbling surf -- drawn from various series dating from 1992 to 2003 -- the show traces a poignant emotional undercurrent, one governed, in large part, by a fraught relationship with a troubled father....

James Fee, whose photographs of abandoned factories, lonesome highways and disjointed human figures express his sense of loss for what he remembered as better times for this country, died Monday. He was 56. Fee died of liver cancer at his home in Beverly Hills, his photography dealer, Craig Krull, said. He photographed what he saw as America's cultural icons in decline, the rusted cars, crumbling drive-in movie theaters and other discards that fascinated him.

IN the Robert Altman film "Vincent & Theo," adapted from the letters of Vincent van Gogh and his brother Theo, footage of the 1987 Christie's London auction of "Sunflowers," which sold for $39.9 million, is intercut with the artist lying on a straw mattress in his garret in Belgium, penniless yet unrepentant, while his younger brother and thankless patron assails him for his financial drain on the family. "Do you always have to go so far on principle, Vincent, or does it just come naturally?"

James Fee, who died of cancer in September, was born on Pearl Harbor Day, 1949. That's the least of the ironies that this photograph contains. It was made on the Pacific island of Peleliu where his father, Russell, served as a medic near the war's end. During a 72-day battle in which more than 20,000 men died, Russell ferried wounded GIs under heavy fire to a ship that could have ended up like this one. In a way, for Russell, it did. "I wonder when I'll be back. If?," he wrote home in 1944.
