Mid C20th - Photography
Werner Bischof, Mario Carnicelli, Harold Feinstein, Larry Fink & Marc Riboud - Streets of New York
"Streets of New York is an exhibition of Big Apple life, as captured by five masters of their craft. The show includes work from the late 1940s through to the mid-1970s, the period generally considered the golden age of street photography.
In alphabetical order, the five photographers in Streets of New York are Werner Bischof, the first non-founding member of Magnum Photos; Mario Carnicelli, who this year received the inaugural Prix Viviane Esders in recognition of his career as a photographer; Harold Feinstein, described by the New York Times as, ‘One of the most accomplished recorders of the American experience’; Larry Fink, hugely influential, with many exhibitions, photobooks and books on photographic theory to his name; Marc Riboud, Magnum Photos photographer, whose humanist eye recorded some of most iconic images to be represented by the agency.
Seeing the work of these important artists together in a single exhibition provides greater insight to their work, the era, and the importance of the genre."
