I'm very happy with "If You Reading This." There were a number of components that went into structuring the show and I am too beat to write even somewhat coherently about any of them.
However, I'm busting out this one right now. I'll clean it up later. The photo "Bulletholes" faces the street and is in an unlit corner, although it gets plenty of light during the day. It was important for that one to face the street with the window reference and "looking at" and "looking through" and vision references and all. Plus, the reference to our endemic gun violence and our homicide rate.
While facing "bulletholes" you can see "shot appliances" in the first room and "gunshot wound" in the further room. Because of the character of the space, I wanted to connect one room to the next, not only one photo to the next which lent to placing photos not just so they would bounce off of each other, but so the whole show would pinball from one photo to the next and the rooms would be connected.

Here's one more example-
In this grouping there's a text reference and a form reference and a mirroring of the photos within this group of four, and other photos in the show.
"Venetian Blinds" is hung directly across from "Man's Back" and from across the room there's a reflection of "Venetian Blinds" in the glass on "Man's Back."
I love these 2 together in the show, but it was too much if they were in the same room.
