Event Description

Alfred Stieglitz is considered a central figure in the history of photography. This exhibit at New York's Seaport Museum brings together 39 Stieglitz photographs for the first time since he displayed them nearly 80 years ago.

Forty original prints borrowed from major art museums and private collections throughout the United States illustrate the two major periods during which the photographer created his scenes of New York City. Beginning in the 1890s as a young man, he produced a series of images—among them The Terminal, Winter—Fifth Avenue, The Flatiron, 1903; and The Steerage—that today remain among the world’s most iconic photographs of the city. During the mid ‘teens, Stieglitz set New York aside as a subject of his photographic exploration, and did not return to the topic until 1930. Over the next eight years, he produced a series of images that captured the city’s remarkable transformation, creating an enduring portrait of the emerging Manhattan skyline.

Dr. Bonnie Yochelson, a nationally renowned historian of photography and adjunct professor at New York’s School of Visual Arts, curated the exhibition and authored the accompanying catalogue published by Rizzoli.
