The New Street Types of New York

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 20-07-2013 29-09-2013 15 The New Street Types of New York Alice Austen?s groundbreaking portfolio ?Street Types of New York? from 1894, marks her as one of the earliest female street photographers who captured the changing face of the city?s working class just before the turn of the century. Today a new generation of photographers continues her legacy of documenting the ever-changing city. This exhibition includes work by: Alice Austen, Chris Arnade, Alice Attie, Dmitry Gudkov, Peter Funch, Andy Jones, Wayne Lawrence, Erica McDonald, Greg Miller, Christina Paige, Susanna Ray, Richard Renaldi, Ruddy Roye, Geordie Wood, and AnRong Xu. The New Street Types draws connections from early street portraiture like that of Alice Austen (1866-1952) to contemporary image-makers. The artists selected for the exhibition work in a similar style to Austen, often employing large format photography to create portraits of New York City?s diverse communities and subcultures ? including the outer fringes of the expanding city like the Rockaways and Orchard Beach. In addition to the contemporary images, Alice Austen?s rare and fascinating ?Street Types? portfolio, produced c.1896 by the Albertype Company, will be on display. The Alice Austen House is open Tuesday-Sunday 11am-5pm and is handicap accessible. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=141683 Alice Austen House true DD/MM/YYYY
