Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery is pleased to present Peter Sekaer:  An Untold Story, a poignant photographic record of Depression-era America. Sekaer belongs to the generation of social documentary photographers of the 1930’s who sought to capture the real world through pictures, combining their personal commitment to social change with artistic expression. Having fallen into relative obscurity after his premature death at age 49 in 1950, Sekaer’s work has experienced a resurgence in interest with the current retrospective at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta and the accompanying book, edited by curator Julian Cox and John T. Hill.
