New Yorker Cover

The July 28th, 2014 issue of
The New Yorker features
a review by Vince Aletti
of our current exhibition.


A savvy selection of vintage black-and-white photographs refreshes a familiar subject, buoyed by the pleasure of discovering unfamiliar names. The standout is Ugo Zovetti, an Italian active in the mid-twentieth century, whose work is rarely exhibited in the U.S.; his startling closeups of people in public spaces echo the works of Lisette Model and Leon Levinstein. Beuford Smith, now seventy-three and living in Brooklyn, also dazzles with a group of gritty pictures taken on the streets of New York in the sixties-he deserves a show of his own. Also included are strong works by Anthony Barboza, Donald Blumberg, Mario Carrieri, and Marvin Newman. Through Aug. 8.
