Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of rare early work by street photographer Rebecca Lepkoff. Lepkoff’s New York photographs from the 1940s and 1950s captured a special side of the city’s residential neighborhoods that is disappearing today. Perhaps best known for her photographs of life on the Lower East Side, Lepkoff photographed throughout the city including doing a series she titled “Morning Rush, Midtown” which depicted the daily hustle and bustle of one of the world’s busiest neighborhoods.
