IN EXILE: Paris and New York
The Photographs of Fred Stein
Little Italy February 24 – May 15, 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.
