History of Howard Greenberg Gallery

Since its inception almost forty years ago, Howard Greenberg Gallery has built a vast and ever-changing collection of some of the most important photographs in the medium. The Gallery's collection acts as a living history of photography, offering genres and styles from Pictorialism to Modernism, in addition to contemporary photography and images conceived for industry, advertising, and fashion. Maintaining diverse and extensive holdings of photographic prints, the gallery includes such masters as Eugène Atget, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, André Kertész, William Klein, Gordon Parks, Edward Steichen, Paul Strand, Josef Sudek, and Edward Weston on its roster of artists. More recent additions include Edward Burtynsky, Jungjin Lee, Joel Meyerowitz, and Vivian Maier. In 2013 Howard Greenberg Gallery announced exclusive representation for the estates of Berenice Abbott and Arnold Newman. In 2018 Howard Greenberg Gallery became the primary representative of the Ray K. Metzker Archive.


Formerly a photographer and founder of The Center for Photography in Woodstock in 1977, Howard Greenberg has been one of a small group of gallerists, curators and historians responsible for the creation and development of the modern market for photography. Howard Greenberg Gallery—founded in 1981 and originally known as Photofind—was the first to consistently exhibit photojournalism and 'street' photography, now accepted as important components of photographic art.

After nearly 17 years in SoHo, Howard Greenberg Gallery moved to The Fuller Building, at 41 East 57th Street, in 2003. Consistent with its former downtown space, the midtown gallery reflects the need for a flexible yet intimate space where multiple exhibitions can be presented simultaneously. Features of the space include: a central gallery, secondary exhibition room, and several private viewing rooms.

In 2012, HGG announced the expansion into a new space adjacent to the main gallery in the Fuller Building. The additional 2,500 square feet gives the gallery greater flexibility in programming by doubling its wall space and adding additional presentation rooms.


Most recently, in September of 2021, HGG completed its move into two 57th Street locations: an exhibition space on the 8th floor of the Fuller Building at 41 East 57th Street; and an entire floor at 32 East 57th Street, directly across from the Fuller Building, to house, manage and present its vast archive of over 40,000 prints.


The foremost commitment of Howard Greenberg Gallery is to extend an awareness of and appreciation for fine art photography. Accordingly, we are fully accessible to the beginning collector and able to assist and inform the experienced connoisseur and institutional collector. Only a small portion of our holdings are shown in the online gallery, so please don't hesitate to inquire. Members of the knowledgeable staff are always available to guide the viewer through our substantial holdings and to aid in the selection of images. The visitor is assured of a unique and rewarding gallery experience and we hope to emulate that experience with this website.
