New Yorker Cover

The October 31st, 2011 issue of
The New Yorker features
a review by Vince Aletti
of our current exhibition.



Many of Kalisher’s black-and-white photographs from the nineteen-sixties and seventies were taken in New York, and they share a casually incisive style with Garry Winogrand’s, Tod Papageorge’s, and Joel Meyerowitz’s pictures of the city. Included in this smart selection of new and vintage prints are a few MOMA party pictures, but Kalisher worked primarily on the street, yielding photographs that are anecdotal and full of characters: a pugnacious child outside church, a driver sticking his tongue out, a fed-up guy pushing his stalled car. A group of earlier pictures in the office here grounds the show in atmospheric urban noir.
