Good photo galleries in New York City?

  1. Hi All,

    Another New York City destination questions:

    Can anyone recommend some good photography galleries in New York
    City? Any media (color, B&W, etc.) and any style (portrait,
    photojournalism, street, etc.) is fine. I just want to see lots of
    quality work.


  2. Leica Gallery on Broadway

    International Center of Photography (ICP) on Avenue of the Americas (I think on the corner of 43rd)

  4. Hi Randall,
    Checkout the website below. I haven't been to NY in a couple months (I need to go!), but a quick look at the exhibitions calendar shows a Lee Friedlander show downtown that sounds interesting. I like to walk around Chelsea and check stuff out, but if you are only interested in photography, the MOMA has a small but nice collection on permanent display. It is impressive to see so many great works together in one room - that is, if you can see around the mobs of people. Have fun! David
  5. MoMA has the Friedlander exhibit through the end of August:
  6. Doh! David beat me to it.
  8. Wow!

    Thanks, everyone.

  9. An addition to the above, I'll list my favorite photo dealer. Always compelling exhibits, even when not my cup of tea.
