Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition, Walker Evans and His Early Circle featuring vintage work by Evans and selected contemporaries from the late 1920s – 1930s. The photographers included are Berenice Abbott, Helen Levitt, Peter Sekaer, Ben Shahn and Ralph Steiner. In the late 1920s Walker Evans began his self-education in the art and craft of photography; he was both lucky and wise in developing friendships with capable teachers – generous with their criticism, equipment, and techniques. In retrospect, the roster of those sharing ideas and experiences now seems long and farsighted.
