Barry Kornbluh. Jeff Marx in New York. 1992:
The exhibition was arranged by "Metenkov House," Photography Development Fund with the support of the U.S. Consulate General in Ekaterinburg.
The exhibition will be open until May 16.
New York City symbolizes many things to millions of people both in the United States and abroad. From its immigrant roots opening its arms to millions of people at Ellis Island in the early 1900's to its vibrant culture, New York is aptly named "The City that never sleeps."
Pavel Antonov. 2002:
Because of its "Larger than life" reputation, the City has become the compelling subject of photographers for over a century. Brought together in this exhibition are over 100 images by seventeen international photographers documenting their diverse views of this extraordinary city. The images span decades from the 1940's through today, from the City's iconic buildings and portraits of its people, to quiet contemplative moments.
Walter Rosenblum. Girl on a Swing. Pitt Street. 1938:
Featured in the exhibition are vintage photographs by Arthur Leipzig and Walter Rosenblum, early work by Frank Dituri and Contemporary images by New Yorkers - Pavel Antonov, Anita Chernewski, Jill Conner, Susan Dooley, Jennifer Drucker, Marcy Hargan, Susan Kravitz, Joan Powers, Edward Rubin, Claire Seidl and several foreign photographers - Gianni Cesare Borghesan from Italy, Carlos Escolstico from Spain, Eugenia Gortchakova, Zbigniew Kosc from Amsterdam, Kerstin Drobek and Isolde Loock from Germany, Avigail Schimmel from France, and Valery Orlov from Russia.
