Sy Kattelson Show Featured in the Paris Review

An exhibition of photographs by Sy Kattelson opens tonight at Howard Greenberg Gallery, where it’s on display through February 11. Featuring work from the forties through the nineties, the show marks the breadth and depth of Kattelson’s contributions to street photography. “I try to be as unobtrusive as possible, looking for those moments when people are focused in on themselves,” Kattelson, now ninety-three, told the gallery. “And I try to find settings where this inwardness is contrasted by the dynamics of the city, by taxi cabs rushing past, by advertisements, the perspective of the street, and by the other people in the same space, everyone in their own thoughts.”
