Opening: A Democracy of Imagery at Howard Greenberg Gallery


Organized by Colin Westerbeck (a former curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago and director of the California Museum of Photography at the University of California, Riverside), this incredible exhibition presents, in the curator’s words, “underappreciated photographs by famous photographers and great photographs by underappreciated photographers.” Digging into the gallery’s legendary back room, Mr. Westerbeck assembled 100 outstanding pictures by Richard Avedon, Edward Burtynsky, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Saul Leiter, Vivian Maier, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, Joel Meyerowitz, Gordon Parks and others to present a history of photography through the eyes of an expert.
