IN EXILE: Paris and New York
The Photographs of Fred Stein
Street scene of women standing by car in Little Italy February 24 – May 14, 2016

Fred Stein was an early champion of street and documentary photography recognized for his iconic images of life in Paris and New York from the 1930’s through the early 1960’s as well as portraits of important writers, artists, scientists and celebrities of the time, such as Albert Einstein, Salvador Dalí, and Marlene Dietrich. While Stein originally set out to be a public defender, his pastime of photography became his livelihood when he fled from Germany to Paris in 1933, the year Hitler was appointed Chancellor. He fled again from Paris to New York City in 1941. His career was cut short when he passed away at the age of 58, and it has only been in more recent years that his work is getting the recognition it deserves as an important and insightful record of city-life during a pivotal moment in history...MORE.

Landscape photo of car parked in snow by mountains February 24 – May 14, 2016

Metz’s Quaking Aspen: a Lyric Complaint challenged the first 100 years of landscape photography, which had placed a major emphasis on depicting nature as sublime, heroic, and unspoiled. Unlike previous photographers who glorified nature, Metz and his contemporaries wrenched photography out of the national parks and replaced the scenic with the vernacular of the everyday American landscape...MORE.
