William Klein and The New York School 1940s and 50s Street Photography

14 June - 7 September 2017

The exhibition featured rarely seen 1950’s New York images by William Klein, and several photographers gathered together in Jane Livingston’s seminal 1992 book The New York School.  Included works were all taken during the 1940’s and 1950’s. Read the bio for each artist below. We featured beautiful small-scale pieces by New Yorker Rebecca Lepkoff, who was associated with the Photo League, the legendary group of New York based photographers dedicated to using photography to capture everyday life and promote social involvement, which was first established in the mid-1930’s.
