A Democracy of Imagery is an exhibition of work by 84 photographers from the 1860s through 2002. Curated by Colin Westerbeck, the exhibit presents 100 images by artists including Richard Avedon, Edward Burtynsky, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Saul Leiter, Vivian Maier, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, Joel Meyerowitz and Gordon Parks. The photographs include Saul Leiter’s photograph of a young Andy Warhol, showing the artist reviewing images when he was known as an illustrator; Allen Ginsberg’s 1989 photograph of David Hockney and William S. Burroughs as two well-dressed gentlemen; and Alfred Hitchcock hamming it up for the camera in a 1942 photograph by Goon Mili. A book entitled A Democracy of Imagery will be published later this year (but available for pre-order on Amazon) by Steid/Howard Greenberg Library, 2016.
The exhibit, A Democracy of Imagery is on view through April 30 at the Howard Greenberg Gallery, 41 East 57th Street, 1406.
